MEng, BEng Mechatronics and Robotics

Mechatronics and robotics is at the forefront of progression across a whole host of large industries globally including transport, healthcare, entertainment, and energy. The demand for unique and innovative advances in technologies to deliver sustainable solutions for the future is ever-growing — meaning mechatronics and robotics couldn’t be more relevant than they are today.
This multidisciplinary course offers you the opportunity to study the most exciting aspects of electronics, mechanical design and artificial intelligence and apply them to the design and manufacture of sophisticated intelligent systems.
You’ll also have access to cutting-edge research being carried out in the EPSRC National Facility for Innovative Robotic Systems, alongside industry-standard software and lab facilities, right here on campus. Additionally, we offer exciting opportunities like studying abroad and industrial work placements to ensure you have the best grounding to head out into the professional world.
