BEng in Mechatronics

Mechatronics is the combination of mechanical, electronic, robotic and software engineering systems that are used in modern manufacturing industries.

Mechatronics is how high-tech manufacturing is done today and is becoming one of the fastest growing career areas. Mechatronics engineers design, build and operate intelligent machines such as the robots and flexible manufacturing systems of today and for tomorrow. 

During this course students will learn how to design, build and control the machines and processes that are found in the biomedical, automotive, food processing and high volume manufacturing sectors, to name but a few. Mechatronic engineers are problem solvers by nature, looking for solutions to sometimes difficult engineering applications.
