Mechatronics is the combination of mechanics, electronics, robotics and computing that is used in modern engineering industries. It involves the study of automation from an engineering perspective and serves the purpose of controlling advanced hybrid systems in business and industry.
You will learn how to design, build and control the type of machines and processes that are used, for example, in biomedical, automotive manufacture and high-speed automation. As a mechatronics graduate you will be equally at home in the mechanical or electronic domain and will be a specialist in interfacing computer-controlled systems.
The programme also develops the leadership and communication skills that you will find are essential if you intend to progress on to positions of responsibility in manufacturing and service industries. The one year course develops your knowledge and skills in electrical, electronic, control and mechanical engineering, programming, design, automation, mathematics, management
