Course summary

Robotics is at the forefront of progression across a whole host of large industries globally including transport, healthcare, entertainment and energy. The demand for unique and innovative advances in technologies to deliver sustainable solutions for the future is evergrowing — meaning mechatronics and robotics couldn’t be more relevant than they are today. This multidisciplinary course is delivered alongside the Schools of Mechanical Engineering and Computing and offers you the opportunity to study the most exciting aspects of electronics, mechanical design and artificial intelligence and apply them to the design and manufacture of sophisticated intelligent systems. Here at Leeds, our mechatronics and robotics courses are quality assured, being industrially accredited by two separate institutions: The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). This means that you will graduate with an industry-recognised qualification that will set you apart when it comes to pursuing your career. You’ll also have access to cutting-edge research being carried out in the EPSRC National Facility for Innovative Robotic Systems, alongside industry-standard software and lab facilities, right here on campus. Additionally, we offer exciting opportunities like studying abroad and industrial work placements to ensure you have the best grounding to head out into the professional world. Get a taste of what it’s like to study product engineering at undergraduate level with our Medical Technology Futures collection — a five-part series of free online courses that introduce you to the exciting future of medical device design and engineering.
