Mechatronics Engineering MSc

What is Mechatronics Engineering MSc?

MSc in Mechatronics Engineering is an exciting course designed to give you the knowledge, understanding, skills, and experience that are sought after by potential employers and industry experts.

During this year you will learn about the range and scope of Mechatronics Engineering concepts and techniques; gain an understanding of industrial systems engineering with a mechatronics emphasis to develop you for the area of Robotics, Machine Learning, IoT and Industry 4.0, or continue your engineering research; and develop a range of skills for academic and professional practice.

Study style

The course includes lectures, guest speakers, seminars, individual work, self-led work/research and group work. Group work brings together engineers from a variety of backgrounds to shape projects and tasks. As a day release course, you can immediately apply your learning to your industry role.

You’ll have the chance to work as a team member of individual on a project on the topics ranging from artificial intelligence through smart industrial robots, sensing and embedded systems to smart mechanical systems and products, intelligent industrial inspection, biomedical application and surgical robotics.

"I have significant experience on industry projects"

“Following my academic qualifications and two PhD degrees in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, I spent 23 years in research, teaching, supervising and courses leading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in a number of national and international universities. I also have significant experience on industry projects during my work as a Process Engineer, Leader for Engineering Group, Consultant Engineer, and recently Senior Design Engineer in the modelling team at the Center of Integrated Photonics (CIP) Technologies in Ipswich, UK. As Academic Course Leader for our undergraduate and postgraduate courses I manage the programme’s content to ensure that graduates obtain the range of competences and skills required for successful careers in industrial technologies and and control engineering.”
