Course overview

There has been a growing interest and demand in the industry for professional mechatronic engineers in recent years and the principal aim of the programme is to equip you to work at a professional level in related industries. You will develop practical knowledge and skills to examine and programme basic mechatronic integrated systems with practical experiments in instrumentation, measurement and control of hydraulic and pneumatic and electric systems. You will also be introduced to practical concepts in robotics. Studying the MEng enables you to conduct a group project to develop mechatronic products. 

MEng

Studying the MEng enables you to conduct a group project to actually develop mechatronic products.
