What will you study on the BEng/MEng Mechatronics?
Whether you opt for the BEng Mechatronics or MEng Mechatronics you will study a broad range of engineering disciplines including systems, mechanical, electrical, computer and control engineering.
In addition to the fundamentals of design engineering the degrees specialise in mechatronics and robotics, with specific emphasis on the latest industrial automation and control technologies. Throughout the degree you will learn to model, simulate and design mechatronic systems while gaining significant experience working with the software architectures necessary to do this.
The MEng Mechatronics degree allows you to specialise further and give you the option to study new and emerging areas in Mechatronics. You will demonstrate your advanced skills and mastery of the area by working on a team project in your chosen specialism.
What is the difference between the BEng and MEng course?
There are two honours degree programmes available for each area of study – a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng).
Both degrees share a common first year but due to the advanced nature of the MEng programme students must demonstrate they have the high level knowledge and skills required at the end of year 2 and 3 to progress on the programme.
You must apply direct to either the BEng and MEng, but you can also choose to change programme. You must apply for the MEng in Year 1 if you want to guarantee your student loan will cover the fourth year of fees.
