What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
AAB including Maths and either Physics, Electronics or Further Maths
We require grades AAABB in Scottish Highers including Mathematics and either Physics, Electronics or Further Mathematics. In addition, 2 Scottish Advanced Highers are normally required at grades AB including Mathematics and either Physics, Further Mathematics or Electronics. English Language and Mathematics not taken at Higher/Advanced Higher must have been achieved at SCQF level 5 (minimum National 5 grade C / Intermediate 2 grade C / Standard Grade Credit level grade 3). If you require further clarification about the acceptability of this qualification please contact Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
We consider the National Diploma for entry provided it is in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Entry requirements are based on achievement of the full National Diploma with grades DD plus an additional level 3 qualification in A Level Mathematics at grade A. Applicants are also required to pass an interview. If you are studying the general Engineering stream please contact the admissions office to request a full list of the units we require.
We consider the National Foundation Diploma for entry. Entry requirements are based on achievement of the full National Foundation Diploma with grade D plus additional level 3 qualifications in A Level Mathematics and either Physics, Electronics or Further Maths at grade AB.
In addition to the following requirements applicants are required to provide AS Level Maths at grade B or above. BTEC Extended Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Distinction, Distinction, Distinction including Distinction in the Further Maths for Technicians module. Applicants are also required to pass an interview. If you are studying the general Engineering stream please contact the admissions office to request a full list of the units we require.

Mechatronics is the marriage of mechanical engineering with smart electronics and is vital to subjects such as industrial automation and robotics. 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 course you will learn the techniques necessary for the design and implementation of such intelligent mechatronic systems.
As the biggest single-site University in the country, in one of the most vibrant cities in Europe, the University of Manchester gives students an unrivalled and unique learning experience. You'll enjoy studying at a world-class institution and being at the centre of a dynamic student population. The Students' Union has more than 300 student-run societies, from Aikido to Zoology.
