Why this course?
This course provides you with a broad introduction to the issues encountered and techniques required in developing advanced mechatronic products and automation systems.
Mechatronics and automation is becoming an increasingly important discipline in today’s digital society. New products have been designed applying mechatronic principles. Consumers and society have benefited tremendously from these new intelligent products that include:
- the latest mobile phones with mechatronic features
- intelligent robotic vacuum cleaners
- intelligent wheelchairs
This course trains you to:
- lead mechatronic and automation product development
- contribute as team members to future mechatronic product development
- provide expertise as mechatronic “specialists”
The course is aimed at:
- graduates from relevant courses, who wish to study mechatronics and automation as their chosen career
- those currently working in mechatronics and automation who wish to enhance their theoretical grounding and practical skills
Study mode and duration:
- MSc: 12 months full-time; 24 months part-time
- PgDip: 9 months full-time; 21 months part-time
