Overview

You will learn to evaluate a range of solutions to engineering problems, and to select and apply appropriate solutions to engineering systems. You will use software packages to design, analyse, and evaluate system designs. As you progress, you will develop your integrative approach to designing electro-mechanical systems and become familiar with the techniques of digital signal processing. 

In the first year of the course, you will study engineering principles across a broad range of topics. 

The second year combines mechanical engineering subjects with areas such as embedded systems, digital and analogue electronics and electronic systems design. 

In the final year of the BEng in Mechatronics Engineering (Hons) at University of Wolverhampton, there is an emphasis on the design and analysis of electromechanical systems. You will also have the opportunity of preparing a business plan around a product that you have designed.  

If you continue onto the MEng, you will study modules such as robotics sensors and control and condition monitoring, and undertake a substantive and integrative project that embraces much of what has been learnt in doing the course, as well as broadening subjects such as business management and accounting.

Career

A qualification in Mechatronics provides career opportunities in a broad spectrum of industries, as well as offering a gateway to all levels in the education sector. Mechatronics graduates have followed career paths as diverse as research and development within aerospace companies through to secondary school teaching. 

In the contemporary industrial environment, the approach to problem solving, design, and research and development activities is to form multidisciplinary teams, thereby ensuring that all avenues are explored and evaluated. The Mechatronics engineer is well placed in this structure, since the ethos of the subject is broad based.
