  • Objectives
    Taught by experienced and enthusiastic staffs who are involved in a wide range of ongoing research, the MSc Mechatronics is the most established and successful specialist programme in the discipline in the UK. This course will substantially enhances career prospects. As a graduate from an electrical/electronic, mechanical, computer/software engineering or physical science discipline, you will be looking to integrate your subject knowledge to develop an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving and engineering product development. This advanced programme focuses on enabling students to become proficient in communicating across a range of different disciplines. Within CSE the exposure to the cultures and languages of a multinational student body embraces the ethos of harmonising the different backgrounds both inside and outside the lecture theatre. More specifically, when you have completed the course you will have been exposed to: -Comprehensive coverage of a broad range of engineering disciplines -An enhanced knowledge base with which to solve multidisciplinary mechatronic problems. -The skills required to apply a mechatronic approach to the solution of a technological problem. -Current research facilities
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants will be expected to possess the equivalent of a British Honours Degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant subject. Students without academic qualifications but with extensive industry experience will be considered on an individual basis.
  • Academic title
    MSc/PG Dip Mechatronics International
  • Course description
    Career opportunities

    Graduates from this course can expect enhanced technological skills, which will improve their prospects in such roles as product manager, project leader, research engineer, systems engineer or product development engineer or any engineering role which requires competence in understanding interdisciplinary issues with insights.

    Successful completion of the programme should also provide you with a foundation for a senior project management role in product development in industrial sectors such as automation systems, automotive engineering, aerospace or hardware/software development. Graduands from this course have been eligible for the Science and Engineering Graduates Scheme (SEGS) recognition
    You may also consider extending your study to PhD level.


    Semester One:

    Broadening studies (12 weeks plus three weeks assessment). Four modules with an emphasis on case studies:
    Provides an insight into the fundamental theory behind mechanical, electronic and mechatronic systems engineering and the more detailed study of control, dynamics and design
    -Mechatronic systems – Engineering and Design:
    Introduces the mechatronic philosophies of design and provides the basic tools and rules for analysis of systems, integrated design concepts and evaluation techniques
    -Mechatronic Business Environment:
    Provides an awareness of the commercial environment and the need for profit and some grounding in management techniques
    -Programming and Software Engineering:
    Develops the knowledge of efficient programming approaches to software engineering with an emphasis on the development of practical programming skills. Modular programming in C provides the basis for many signal and image processing software and programming techniques.

    Semester Two:

    Advanced studies (12 weeks plus three weeks assessment). Four modules intended to deepen knowledge of some of the tools required by practising Mechatronic engineers:
    -Machine Vision, Robotics and Flexible Automation:
    Provides both conceptual and detailed knowledge in the area of robotics, machine vision and flexible automation. Also builds upon the fundamental philosophy of Mechatronics in the context of flexible automation technologies and applications.
    -Mechatronics Systems: Dynamics and Control:
    Deepens knowledge in the area of control and dynamics. The study builds upon the fundamental philosophy presented in Mechatronic Systems – Engineering and Design. The application of control and signal processing is considered to be a critical mechatronic specialisation
    -Microprocessor Applications and Digital Signal Processing:
    Provides adequate knowledge for the application of a microprocessor system, aimed at single chip embedded solutions as being appropriate to a product orientated treatment. Also provides the knowledge of DSP algorithms and systems and an understanding of implementation technologies, designs and application areas
    -Research Methods:
    Prepares for the Individual Project by presenting a project outline indicating the problem, methodology and outcomes. Appraises a range of different approaches, which may be adopted at various stages within a research project, taking into account factors such as the project length, constraints and the purpose

    Semester Three:

    -Individual Project :
    Is industrially based, attached to one of the mechatronic research teams within CSE or in other collaborating institutions.
    The research project should be in an area, which is relevant to Mechatronic application, where clear evidence of the ability to solve a real multidisciplinary problem is demonstrated. This research can be industrially based or linked to an industrial partner. The project assessment involves a formal presentation, production of a technical paper and a thesis.


    Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods, including lectures, tutorials and laboratories. Students will be expected to undertake self-directed study.

    Further information

    This programme is taught within the School of Engineering and Technology which forms part of the Faculty of Computing Sciences and Engineering at DMU. The School is large and diverse and is hence able to offer a broad and flexible range of courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Many of the School's academic staffs are engaged in high class, leading edge research and industrial collaboration and consultancy. The School has very strong links with industry and, indeed, many of our courses have been developed in consultation with such internationally-known organisations as the BBC, Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems.
    The School is located in the superbly equipped Queens Building and boasts some of the best and most modern facilities to be found in any UK university. There is a strong emphasis on the teaching of technological fundamentals, computer-based design and the application of information technology in engineering and media-related studies.
