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.
There is the option of apleacement however Applicants who require a Tier 4 visa for study in the UK are not able to apply for the Sandwich degree in the first instance due to Immigration regulations. We encourage International students, once enrolled, to apply for a placement and we have a dedicated team of experts who will lead you through the process. Students who are successful with finding a placement will be provided with help and advice with their visa extension application (subject to the University deadlines and Immigration requirements).
On the Mechatronics Engineering Extended MSc you will spend your first semester studying modules that have been written to provide you with the academic, professional and technical skills that you will need to succeed on your chosen award.
All engineering students on the Extended MSc study the same modules for one semester and then study specialist modules depending on their chosen discipline. This means that whether you have chosen the Aeronautical, Automotive, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Mechatronic or Telecommunications route, you will study the following modules in your first semester:
Academic English: This module will help you to develop your English Language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will introduce you to the conventions of academic writing.
Study skills & Employability: This module will help you to develop the skills and knowledge required to support study at Masters level. It will also help you to develop skills that will aid you in the job market and will look at things such as writing a C.V. and creating a personal development plan.
Engineering Principles: Basic electrical measurement techniques Introduction to Xilinx Digital Design software to enter and simulate the operation of a number of logic designs. Undertake a simple electrical systems test in a simulation environment such as MATLAB and analyse the results to provide performance measures. Design a cellular network and/or a computer data network using simulation packages such as Mentum Planet or OPNet software.
Mathematical Applications: As an engineering graduate you should already have a strong mathematical knowledge. This module will revise your existing knowledge and introduce you to some of the more advanced mathematical concepts deployed in the field of professional engineering. Where appropriate you will utilise software to support and enhance the problem solving and analysis techniques met in this module, allowing you to hone an essential skill for the modern industry based working environment
After successfully completing the first semester, you will concentrate on your chosen core engineering discipline. You will study a total of 8 core and option modules as set out in your award structure. For information about the structure of your award and the modules you will study after the first semester, please see the award handbooks. Further information on the Extended International Masters Programme MSc Extended International Engineering Handbook.
Normal requirements are at least a UK second class honours degree or equivalent in a related engineering discipline. If you do not meet the above but have significant appropriate experience, your application will be considered, provided that you satisfy the University that you are capable of responding to the challenge of postgraduate work. If your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate that you are fluent enough to cope with the course. A minimum score of IELTS 6 or TOEFL 550 (213 computer-based) is normally required.
