Overview Gain the practical training and project experience to become an accomplished Mechatronics engineer – a multi-disciplinary designer at the forefront of the manufacturing and production revolution. Why study BEng/MEng Mechatronics at Middlesex University? Mechatronics at Middlesex is available as either a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng). The degrees produce professional and competent multi-disciplinary engineers capable of meeting the challenges and opportunities arising in contemporary industrial and commercial practice. You will focus on developing systems that control physical motion such as those found in robotic applications and industrial automation, using the latest industry hardware and software equipped in our labs and workshops. To support your career success, you will build a professional portfolio of work throughout your degree and receive regular guest lectures and project feedback from industry professionals, with the option of spending a year on industry placement. Flexible programme design Our suite of Design Engineering courses share a common first year of study, which enable students to experience all aspects of engineering. Depending on your interests, you can then continue with the Mechatronics Engineering degree or transfer to one of these specialist honours programmes: Design Engineering - Design and implementation of digital systems Robotics - Analysing and developing robotics systems Electronic Engineering - Developing analogue and digital systems Course highlights You will be encouraged to enter prestigious design engineering competitions to enhance their experience and career prospects Our dedicated facilities in the new Ritterman Building open in Autumn 2016 and are equipped with industry standard equipment in electronics, mechatronics, robotics and networking solutions All the essential software needed to study the course is provided, including STEP-7, LabVIEW and SolidWorks A year-long work placement is available as part of the course You will extend your industry knowledge through our series of weekly guest lectures delivered by some of the UKs leading design experts and companies If you apply for our four-year MEng course you will gain a masters qualification as soon as you successfully complete your undergraduate degree Whichever pathway you choose, you can change to another after your first year. You can also change onto the main Design Engineering pathway after your second year if desired As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
