Mechatronic Engineering - University of Manchester

Mechatronics is the marriage of mechanical engineering with smart electronics and is vital to subjects such as 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 be able 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. **Special Features** - The first three semesters (one and a half years) of the undergraduate courses in the department share the same content. This gives you the opportunity to transfer between our courses if required. - You will meet with your Personal Tutor on a weekly basis. - We are particularly excited about the Microcontroller/Embedded Systems Project in which you will design and build the electronics for an autonomous robotic buggy - then you will race it!
