It focuses on enabling you to become

proficient in communicating across

a range of different disciplines,

delivering optimised engineering

solutions, using an integrated

multidisciplinary mechatronics


You will be exposed to a broad range

of engineering disciplines, learn to

solve multidisciplinary mechatronics

problems and develop the skills to

apply a mechatronic approach to the

solution of technical problems.


First semester

(September to January)

Electromechanics provides an

insight into the essential theories

and applications underpinning

electronics, mechanics, and

mechatronic systems engineering.

It is supported by a Matlab/

Simulink (SimMechanics)

multibody modelling and simulation

coursework, and an embedded/

electronics system development

coursework, with reference to

typical electro-mechanical systems

Mechatronic Systems:

Engineering and Design

introduces you to system

engineering and the philosophies

of design. It provides the basic tools

and rules for analysis of systems

and integrated design concepts and

evaluation techniques. The module

exposes you to rational assessment

of a range of studies on electromechanical

system design

Engineering Business

Environment and Energy

Studies provides an awareness

of the commercial environment and

the need for operational efficiency

within manufacturing businesses.

The use of sustainable approaches

to production will also be examined

Programming and Software

Engineering develops

the knowledge of efficient

programming approaches to

software engineering with an

emphasis on the development

of practical programming skills.

Modular programming in C provides

the basis for many signal and

image processing software and

programming techniques

Second semester (February to May)

Machine Vision, Robotics

and Flexible Automation

provides both conceptual and

detailed knowledge in the area of

robotics, machine vision and flexible

automation. The module also builds

upon the fundamental philosophy

of mechatronics in the context of

flexible automation technologies

and applications

Engineering Systems:

Dynamics and Control

develops your ability to critically

analyse engineering problems

involving dynamics and control

issues, as well as your experimental

and theoretical skills. Control and

dynamics are key technologies in

the mechatronics design approach

Microprocessor Applications

and Digital Signal Processing

provides knowledge for the

application of microprocessor

systems, aimed at single-chip

embedded solutions as being

appropriate to a product-orientated

treatment. The module also

provides the knowledge of DSP

algorithms and systems and an

understanding of implementation

technologies, designs and

application areas

Research Methods introduces

the fundamentals of research

methods in an engineering

context. It will prepare you for the

individual research project through

undertaking lectures, seminars

and assignments that introduce

and develop the concepts,

organisational structure and

deliverables of a research project

Individual Project you will

undertake a research project,

either industrially-based or linked

to an industrial partner attached

to one of the mechatronic-related

research teams within the faculty

or in other collaborating institutions.

The project should be relevant

to Mechatronics, where clear

evidence of the ability to solve a

real multidisciplinary problem is



Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods including lectures, tutorials and laboratories. You will be expected to undertake self-directed study.


You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant subject.

We are happy to consider equivalent qualifications from anywhere in the world.

If English is not your first language an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent when you start the course is essential. English Language tuition, delivered by our British Council accredited Centre for English Language Learning, is available both before and throughout the course if you need it.

If you have no formal academic qualifications but do have extensive industry experience we will consider your application on an individual basis.

If you feel you would like to talk to us about your qualifications before submitting an application please do not hesitate to call or email using the contact details below.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.



Research is carried out by the Mechatronics Research Centre,which holds a considerable number of UK and EU research project grants and has collaborative research links with more than 100 national and international organisations. The group is internationally regarded and specialises in machine design,control and simulation, fluid power systems and motion control. As part of your studies, you will be offered opportunities to work on projects with research groups within the faculty who are engaged in high-class, leading-edge research and industrial collaboration and consultancy.During the project element of the course, the Intelligent Machines and Automation Systems (IMAS) Research Laboratory provides access to dedicated research facilities.
