Learn how to build mechatronic components and systems, developing the skills and expertise needed to work in engineering industries worldwide.
Our master’s integrates the latest thinking in electrical and mechanical engineering to give you in-depth training in producing mechatronics components and systems. We have developed this course with input from industrial partners to make sure that you have the relevant skills to work in this sector.
A mix of theory, practice and research advances your understanding across electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering. You’ll explore ways to use mechatronics to improve the performance and energy efficiency of modern equipment and devices. These will include techniques using artificial intelligence, modern control and computer engineering. You’ll also learn about the principal subsystems and develop mathematical models and designs.
Group projects are a chance for you to apply mechatronics design principles to complex engineering problems. Working on realistic challenges help you develop skills in project management, teamwork and communication. You'll also explore a range of topics including autonomous systems, robotics or tomography through an individual project.
