(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/
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
• 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
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
• 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
• 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
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.
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.
No work experience is required.
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.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
