Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that combines mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, computer engineering, software engineering, control engineering, and systems design engineering in the design and manufacture of useful products. This programme runs over the period of one calendar year. Students will study two generic research modules: Research and Information Skills and later Advanced Research Methods (Engineering), which are designed to provide the essential self-learning skills necessary for independent study and research during the year and will be taught along with students on other Masters programmes. Learning to become an engineer is as much about having the tools to understand and use technologies as it is about communicating idea and working with people. The project focuses on the stages of planning, researching, design, and data collection. We pride ourselves in teaching using a practical ‘hands-on’ approach, and the first technical module, Advanced Mechatronics pushes the student to the cutting edge of technology, using case studies from our industrial and research projects, and the use of advanced control methods. Taught by the people who brought you the Hands Free Farm, Agricultural Robotics puts you in the driving seat of robot navigation, current state of the art, ROS, LIDAR as well as looking at the global picture of robotic technology in agriculture.
A UK honours degree (minimum 2:2) or equivalent overseas qualification. Previous experience, referees' reports and interviews will be used to determine the suitability of candidates for particular programmes.
