Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering at Anglia Ruskin University - UCAS

Course summary

Help to design the world we live in. Build your knowledge and practical skills in mechatronics and become a hands-on engineer with strong career prospects, with our Mechatronic Engineering degree at ARU. Explore mechanics, automation, electronics and computing on our BEng Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering degree. Mechatronics and Robotics BEng/MEng covers the integration of mechanical, electronic and intelligent control sub-systems to realise a complete system, which may be a product, machine or process. The multidisciplinary nature of Mechatronics employs design principles, processes, models, toolsets and philosophy unique to mechatronics engineers which enable the design and development of simpler, more economical and reliable systems. Mechatronics and Robotics engineers are in short supply, and enjoy highly versatile careers due to their multidisciplinary skills. The course covers a unique balance of key analytical subjects and professional skills, ensuring that our graduate well-equipped to face challenging engineering situations in industry. The management skills necessary to operate successfully as a multidisciplinary engineer in industry are promoted and developed at all stages of the course. At ARU, our expert staff are experienced industry professionals and researchers who will guide and advise you throughout the course. All our engineering courses are in line with the new Engineering Council requirements (AHEP 4.0). Accreditation for our MEng (Hons) Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering degree has been arranged when full student output from the course is available.

Assessment method

Working individually and as part of a group, you’ll use appropriate manufacturing processes and industry-standard equipment to design and build basic electronic circuits and integrate mechanical products with these circuits, following safety regulations. In doing so, you’ll gain an understanding of manufacturing processes and mechatronics. You’ll start thinking about your future career by finding out about the different paths available to you. You’ll gain an understanding of the concerns of engineers today, including environmental, sustainability and ethical issues, commercial and legal considerations, and quality standards. You’ll hear from and meet representative from across the industry, and be encouraged to join professional bodies.
