Mechatronics and robotic systems involves technologies in mechanical engineering, electronics, electrical engineering, control engineering and computing. Remotely operated vehicles on Mars, driverless cars and automated robots at manufacturing assembly lines are just some examples of mechatronics and robotic systems. These products are essentially mechanical in nature but could not function without electrical and computer control systems. There are also numerous automotive applications; modern high performance cars have more than 100 computers hidden in the engine management system, anti-lock brakes, active suspension control and elsewhere. Engineers with experience in mechatronics and robotic systems are therefore in high demand. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
