Course content

Mechatronics is a unique study area that integrates mechanical, electronic and control engineering to create the complex systems that underpin modern automated processes. The course provides coherent and up to date coverage of Mechatronics with specialist modules available in Mechanical, Electronic and Robotics areas. The approach spans specification and design to realisation, with particular emphasis on the application of industry standard CAD tools and DSP devices to develop solutions to practical engineering problems.

NOTE Are you a student from outside the EU? If you are we have designed a version of this award especially for you! It is called the Extended International Master in Mechatronics. It includes an extra semester of preliminary study to prepare you for postgraduate learning in the UK. We strongly recommend that all international students take this option as it is proven to improve your chances of success.

Course content

The course consists of a taught programme followed by an individual project. The taught programme is based on eight modules. Normally these modules are taken over two semesters for the full time route. The individual project is then studied over a further semester to complete the Masters Award.

Semester 1 runs from September to January and Semester 2 from February to June. Study of the MSc normally commences in September. This course has an industrial placement route.

Core modules are:
-Design Technologies for Master
-Research Methods & Project Management
-Embedded Real Time Systems
-MSc Project

Option Modules are:
-Energy Management
-Photovoltaic Technology
-Digital Electronic Systems
-Digital Signal Processing
-Applied Structural Integrity
-Structural Integrity
-Control Systems
-Advanced Engineering Materials
-Sustainable Design & Manufacture

“This course can be completed within 1 year. However this timescale is dependent on students starting the course in September, passing all modules, undertaking their project during the summer semester and experiencing no other delays (such as health issues). Many students choose to delay their project start and enjoy a well-deserved summer break to ‘re-charge their batteries’ which also has academic benefits. In this case a more realistic duration is 15 months for September starters and 18 months for January starters.”

Employment opportunities

Future option for graduates include employment in local, national and international industries normally initially in Research and Development roles although many progress to management positions. Alternatively graduates may choose to pursue further academic qualifications and register for a PhD programme.
