What will you study on the MSc Mechatronic Systems Engineering degree?
This course will focus on both hardware and software issues, bringing these together using a systems approach within the context of mechatronics. You will focus on discrete technologies, integrating technologies into mechatronic systems, and carrying out system performance analysis and optimisation. In preparing the course, Festo, National Instruments and Siemens have all provided significant input to shape the content and make it directly relevant to industry using Industry 4.0 practices.
What will you gain?
Developed in partnership with industry for industry, this course is designed to lead to employment, in sector and on graduation. The course benefits from support that spans over 20 years of partnership with industry.
The course is developed in stages, taking a portfolio approach. Throughout the project stages you'll gain an understanding of essential concepts and the ability to work with discrete technologies, before developing your ability to integrate these technologies into mechatronic systems, and carry out system performance analysis and optimisation. In the final stage of the course, you'll apply your knowledge and specialise in your chosen area through your individual project, with the chance to gain industry experience by working with a partner in the UK or abroad.
