Lancaster’s Mechatronics degree programme was the first of its kind in the UK, set up in 1984 in response to employers’ needs. Thirty years later we continue to lead the field.
Accredited as meeting partial fulfilment of the requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer by The Institution of Engineering Technology (IET) and The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), our three-year BEng Mechatronics degree is so well regarded that our graduates often go on to coordinate teams of engineers or move upwards into engineering management.
Mechatronic Engineering is the combination of mechanical, electronic and computer engineering.
Your course takes a multi-disciplinary approach and focuses on product design and systems integration using embedded microcontrollers, computers and actuators. You will learn to master the software that drives this technology and use your new skills on individual and group projects such as equipping mobile robots with satellite navigation systems.
On graduation, you will be capable of applying new technologies, promoting advanced design and introducing new and more efficient production techniques or processes.
