Course Description

Our stimulating Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering BEng degree programme combines mechanical, computer, and electronic and electrical engineering to address the challenges of designing and deploying intelligent technologies. You will gain strong theoretical and practical skills and collaborate with global experts.

At the University of Birmingham we recognise that successful 21st Century engineers will thrive alongside professionals with wide-ranging expertise. Our flagship Integrated Design Projects run throughout Years 1-3 of your degree. You’ll work alongside Mechanical and Civil Engineers to develop designs for technologies with impact in the world. In your first year you’ll learn computer aided design, about engineering processes and human-technology interactions.

The Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering programme gives you a solid grounding in the underlying physical and mathematical principles of the subject, along with a thorough, connected overview of electronic, mechanical and computer technology and their applications.

You will also gain experience in a range of integrated system issues through project work, the projects are set and assessed alongside our partners from major industries. In these projects, you’ll gain vital employability skills that will give you a competitive edge in applications forms, interviews and assessment tests for graduate jobs and they will bring your studies to life.

Graduates of the programme will have the blend of mechatronic and software integration skills required for successful careers in robotics, in all forms of transport, in medical technologies, in advanced manufacturing and in space technologies, in research and development and in product design.

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
