Mechatronic Engineering at University of Manchester - UCAS

Course summary

Switch on your career in mechatronic engineering at Manchester, a university with a prestigious engineering history - and a bright focus on the future. Mechatronics, the marriage of mechanical engineering with smart electronics, is vital to subjects including industrial automation and robotics. To interact with an object, a mechatronic system must know where the object is, be able to move the object and place it in the required new position. The electronics require information from sensors that can detect position, orientation, and visual or audio signals. The electrical inputs from the sensors have to be interpreted and the appropriate signals sent out to the actuators to perform the required operation. A good understanding of feedback control is also required to make changes in the system from one steady position to another, without oscillations or unpredictable movements. In this course you will learn the techniques necessary for the design and implementation of such intelligent mechatronic systems. In the final year you will also complete a team project directly funded by industry or inspired by industrial needs. Past projects have included developing an instrumented training wheelchair for para-athletes, creating a new core infrastructure for a robot orchestra, and developing a cyber-secure electricity management system in smart cities.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

Applicants completing the Northern Consortium (NCUK) International Foundation Year or INTO Manchester International Foundation in Science and Engineering are required to achieve A*AA including Mathematics, one of either Physics, Chemistry or Further Mathematics, and a third academic subject. An EAP score of A is required. An excellent performance in local examinations before starting the NCUK Foundation Year, particularly in mathematics and physical science subjects, is also required. Your qualifications prior to the NCUK Foundation Year will be benchmarked against the entry requirements for The University of Manchester BEng (Hons) Electrical, Electronic and Mechatronic Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year. The University also recognises a number of external foundation courses as suitable for entry to this undergraduate programme. Assessment will be made on a case-by-case basis and applicants will be expected to meet the entry requirements for The University of Manchester BEng (Hons) Electrical, Electronic and Mechatronic Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year in their academic qualifications prior to the foundation course. Applicants studying other foundation programmes should contact the academic department to check if their qualification is recognised for entry to this programme and for specific entry requirements.
