Course summary

Overview The BEng Mechatronics and Robotics programme offers a strong understanding of Artificial Intelligence, automation systems, Industrial Internet of Things as well as mechatronics for real-time systems through practice-based learning. With waves of new technology, the opening of application areas and in response to changes in industrial focus and interest, this programme in the area of automation engineering, offers fresh technological content and opportunities for practice-based skills development. What does our degree do? The programme combines Mechatronics and Robotics aspects by introducing students to the science and technology of design, implementation and maintenance of industry-used software and hardware components for modern automation systems with a network of intelligent devices. The programme will prepare students with a set of theoretical knowledge skills by providing a solid background into the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science and engineering as well as a set of practical skills by applying these theories and principles in solving real-world technical engineering problems. Why study BEng Mechatronics & Robotics at Middlesex University? The degree produces professional and competent multi-disciplinary engineers capable of meeting the challenges and opportunities arising in contemporary industrial and commercial practice. You will explore all aspects of engineering to get a broad understanding of robotics, design, electronics, mechatronics and networking solutions. Using the latest hardware and software, including LabVIEW, MATLAB, SolidWorks, NX and STEP-7, you will also learn to develop systems that control physical motion – such as the ones you’ll find in robotic applications and industrial automation. To support your career success, you will build a professional portfolio of work throughout your degree and receive regular guest lectures and project feedback from industry professionals, with the option of spending a year on industry placement. Flexible programme design Our suite of Design Engineering courses share a common first year of study, which enable students to experience all aspects of engineering. Depending on your interests, you can then continue with the BEng Mechatronics & Robotics Engineering degree or transfer to the BEng Design Engineering degree. Our weekly guest lectures give you the chance to enhance your industry knowledge and build contacts with some of the industry’s leading experts and companies. They’ll also give you the help, advice and feedback you need to start building your professional portfolio while you study. Our London location gives you access to industry contacts, work experience opportunities and the chance to showcase your work at design engineering competitions. You will also have the option to get a feel of industry with a paid, year-long work placement.
