What will I learn?

About the course

Mechatronic Engineering is an integrated course that covers mechanical, electronic and electrical engineering, so if you want to work across these industries this multidisciplinary approach could be the course for you. This STEM course is designed so you will become equally skilled with both mechanical and electrical engineering principles and practice, which is useful in industry due to the variety of projects engineers work across.

There is an increasing demand to design smart products and a move towards electrification across industries. With more sophisticated automated processes, learning skills from each area will prepare you for the increasing range of demands engineers face.

In your first year you will learn the fundamentals, so you have a thorough grounding in the principles. Then in your second and final year you will learn to design, create and maintain smart automation systems. As well as learning how to tackle complex engineering challenges in a variety of industries, such as:

  • Air
  • Marine
  • Automotive
  • Railway
  • Energy production
  • Transmission and utilisation.

Throughout the course there is a continuous focus on industrial automation including robotic and mechatronic systems, which will prepare you for life after graduation, where engineers are working with complex automated systems.

During your studies you have the chance to take a placement after your second year. You could work in the industry and put what you’ve learnt into practice. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national competitions like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student,Railway Challenge and Unmanned Aircraft System Challenge UAS (or comparable design and build team projects).

Your career

As a graduate of this course, you may consider employment in a wide range of sectors including the automotive, construction, manufacturing, design, medical and electronics industries. You could consider roles such as software engineer, design and test engineer and lead engineer to name a few.

Additionally, you may gain skills that are transferable to other industries and may be able to pursue a career that requires a good honours degree. You could also go on to further study and the University has many options available for postgraduate study which may interest you.
