I'm referring to mechatronics and robotics course at the uni of leeds. It says for electrical eng and mechanical eng, starting salary is 26k (lots of respondents), whereas mechatronics was 25k. After 3 year the average for electrical is 31k, mechanical is 34k, however the average for mechatronics is apparently on 26.5k????? Sometimes it can't get the exact data and on the disclaimer it says the stats are for all production and manufacturing engineering degrees at leeds for the past 2 years. Thing is Leeds don't have a production and manufacturing and engineering degree, so the data must be for the mechatronics graduates. Do you think this is true? it is data from 50 students that have responded. Since theres no prod and manufac degree at leeds, these students must be mechatronic gradates. How can their salary be so low after 3 years? I thought mechatronic engineers could get jobs in either mechanical and electrical as well as both? So would the average salary not be similar to the other two?

These stats are really pretty limited. I'd advise taking them with a pinch of salt - it will vary hugely between individuals.
