Course content

Our course – suitable for graduates of engineering, mathematics or physical sciences –will challenge you academically and provide exposure to modern issues in advanced mechanical engineering science. You will have the opportunity to specialise in mechatronics and will learn to confidently use advanced electrical systems. You will understand both the impact and use of control systems, instrumentation and sensors. You will also gain in-depth knowledge of the relevant fundamental science, methods, analysis and engineering applications.

Introducing your degree

This masters course could see you designing robots and building machines with the power to change modern life. Mechatronics is an exciting branch of engineering, uniting the principles of electrical, mechanical and computer engineering.


This course will feature the expertise and guidance of our cutting-edge Electro-Mechanical Engineering Research Group. You will learn to confidently use advanced electrical systems and understand both the impact and use of control systems, instrumentation and sensors.

The year is divided into two semesters. Each semester, you will have the chance to broaden your engineering education by selecting specialist modules as well as completing core modules. Core modules focus on mechanical engineering, electrical systems and control. Specialist modules include Robotics and Automotive Propulsion.

The final four months will focus on applying research. You will engage in experimental and practical study and apply computer simulations to complete a research project and dissertation.

The course will equip you with the specialist knowledge and practical skills to pursue a professional career or further research in mechatronics.
