Brief Description

The M.Eng in Mechatronics is a one year, full-time programme and the mode of operation is based on the modular system.  It consist of a taught component extending over two semesters, with a Mechatronics project taken over a third semester.

Aims

  • To provide a competence in automated hardware and software systems and the ability to apply them to specific cases in a manufacturing setting.
  • To provide a knowledge of trends and current approaches in manufacturing such e.g. Industry 4.0 and how these provide a competitive advantage in a global manufacturing context.
  • To provide an insight to how automated manufacturing systems function in a global economy and to develop some management skills in this area.

 

The M.Eng in Mechatronics is a one year, full-time programme and the mode of operation is based on the modular system.  It consist of a taught component extending over two semesters, with a Mechatronics project taken over a third semester.  The project presents a piece of significant original work with high analytical content. The programme comprises core and optional modules which allow one of two pathways to be taken through the programme. One pathway has an emphasis on mechanical design, the other pathway concentrates on software and control. The course comprises 12 modules in total.
