Mechatronic Engineering

At Southampton our Electronic and Electrical Engineering graduates have a world-leading reputation for creative solutions based on cutting-edge knowledge and state-of-the-art technical skills. Mechatronic engineering combines electrical and mechanical engineering to find solutions for systems that rely on mechanical elements, electrical power, sensing and control. Our three-year BEng Mechatronic Engineering degree has been specifically designed to meet the increasing demand from industry for engineers with cross-disciplinary skills in the field of robotics, flexible manufacturing, electromechanical power systems and electrical power transmission and distribution systems. You will investigate the problems of combining microelectronics, electrical and mechanical components into electromechanical devices or systems such as micro-machines, electric vehicles and industrial robots.
