Mechatronics is the marriage of mechanical engineering with smart electronics and is vital to subjects such as industrial automation and robotics.  The Mechatronic Engineering with Industrial Experience programme is offered at The University of Manchester .


To interact with an object, a mechatronic system must know where the object is, be able to move the object and place it in the required new position.  The electronics require information from sensors that can detect position, orientation, and visual or audio signals.  The electrical inputs from the sensors have to be interpreted and the appropriate signals sent out to the actuators to perform the required operation.  A good understanding of feedback control is also required to be able to make changes in the system from one steady position to another without oscillations or unpredictable movements.

In this  Mechatronic Engineering with Industrial Experience course offered at The University of Manchester you will learn the techniques necessary for the design and implementation of such intelligent mechatronic systems.
