Awarded by: Lancaster University
If you're interested in Engineering and want to know how things are integrated, designed, manufactured and made to work, this is the course for you. Mechatronics is a term defined to encompass the study of mechanical, electrical / electronic and control engineering. Through consultation with local employers, we have developed a highly industry relevant programme that delivers the knowledge, experience and general transferable skills required for employment in this broad and exciting field.
Our BEng (Hons) Mechatronics Engineering programme will provide you with the core and specialist principles of engineering to furnish you with the required skills to enjoy an exciting career path within this diverse sector. You will have the opportunity to customize your course to follow a Mechatronics pathway, after you have sampled core engineering subjects.
The course consists of core common modules at level 4 and then develops with more subject specialisms later in the programme. Opportunities to explore software and practical subject areas such as computer aided design, microprocessors and controls and simulation are embedded within the modules to enable a blend of practical and theoretical experiences to enhance employability.
A current shortage of skilled Mechatronics engineers means there are excellent career opportunities for talented engineering graduates as design, production and project engineers within a variety of sectors. Many of our graduates are now employed by major companies such as EDF Energy, Westinghouse Springfields, BAE Systems, Airbus, NIC, GCE and Ford Motor Company as design, production, project or research and development engineers.
