**Why BEng Mechatronics Engineering?**
Our BEng Mechatronics Engineering course will equip you to design and develop mechatronic systems in modern industries, as you explore developments and applications in the ‘Internet of Things’ era. You’ll cover fundamentals including mechatronics system theory, robotics, automation technology, operation, engineering design and management. You’ll also examine advanced manufacturing and the very latest challenges and approaches in the field, including smart factories, transformations to connected devices and dealing with new cyber risks associated with automation and data exchange trends in the manufacturing industry.

Taking an inter-disciplinary engineering approach, the course has a strong focus on industrial applications, based on the extensive survey of various industrial companies. Hands-on learning opportunities will also be available to you as you undertake practical experiments using state-of-the-art technology, such as equipment related to ‘Industrial 4.0’ and the ‘Industrial Internet of Things’, available in our specialist labs. Our links to local and national industry, including firms such as ABB, MOOG, SC Group, Spirax Sarco, Dowty Propeller, Kohler Mira and Total Metal Products Ltd, will also give you the chance to apply learning to real-world issues on this practically-focused course.

What students say


Sorry, no information to show

This is usually because there were too few respondents in the data we receive to be able to provide results about the subject at this university.

After graduation


The stats in this section relate to the general subject area/s at this university – not this specific course. We show this where there isn't enough data about the course, or where this is the most detailed info available to us.

Engineering

What are graduates doing after six months?

This is what graduates told us they were doing (and earning), shortly after completing their course. We've crunched the numbers to show you if these immediate prospects are high, medium or low, compared to those studying this subject/s at other universities.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Graduates are in significant demand, so unemployment rates are well below the national graduate average and starting salaries are well above average. Much the most common industries for these graduates are now vehicle manufacture - there are not enough people with these degrees to go round and so the big employers tend to take the lion's share at the moment. But pretty much anywhere there is manufacturing, there are production engineers. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
