Is it easy to get a job in robotics with a Mechatronic Degree?

I was intending on applying to Manchester , Sheffield and QMUL for Mechatronics and Robotics as that is the area of Engineering im most interested in, however i've been told that choosing such a niche early on isnt advisable and that most companies would rather hire a Mechanical/CS/EE Engineer instead as in Mechatronics you get "spread too thin" between ME/EEE/CS without getting the indepth knowledge you would have in other degrees. So is Mechatronics still a viable degree to go into if you want to eventually end up working in Robotics?
