More about the course

Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision mechanics, electronics, controls, and computer engineering, combined through a process of integrated design. Thus it involves being able to handle a wide range of technologies in sensors, actuators, interface hardware, control systems, analogue and digital electronics, software engineering, and concurrent design.  

Applications are extremely wide ranging – covering, for example the aerospace industry, road vehicles and trains, medical engineering, materials processing, advanced manufacturing systems, defence systems and consumer electronics. Graduates may therefore expect employment across a very wide range of engineering companies. This Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics (Hons) course, offered by University of Hertfordshire, lays greater emphasis on the mechanical engineering aspect of the discipline.

Accreditation

The BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics course is accredited by RAes and IMechE and satisfies, in part, the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration for the cohort intakes from 2016 up to, and including, 2020.
