MEng (Hon), Full-time Including Foundation Year
, Duration: 5 Years
Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but donât have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Expand your expertise with the technical depth and project work experience you need to progress further in a robotics career on our MEng degree programme. The extra yearâs study leads to a deeper understanding of the subject and its real-world application. Youâll get the chance to work on a wider range of projects, including group work that could involve our professional partners and collaborators - BAE Systems, CISCO, NASA, the NHS and the Northwest Aerospace Alliance among others. And just as importantly, youâll develop a range of transferable skills, like teamwork, decision-making, delegation, identifying and solving problems, and communication - all skills employers prize.
There are opportunities for paid, real-world industrial experience working on ERDF funded commercial projects connected to local industry in the North West, and Summer Undergraduate Internships, working on actual research projects - we recently placed a student with NASA.
The majority of graduates embark on careers in high value manufacturing. A course module that will help you plan your career as an engineering professional is part of your degree programme.
Career options in Robotic Engineering are varied - you could go on to work in high value manufacturing, industrial and commercial sectors, aerospace, the automotive industry, the Ministry of Defence and research development.

Preston’s such a lovely student city – there’s something on each night and the prices are amazing, it’s really geared toward students. Warehouse and The Ship Inn saw the most of my nights out in town. It’s not really a bustling metropolis, but less distractions = more work done! And if you’re wanting a huge night, Liverpool’s about half an hour on the train and is amazing. My course is great, with fascinating, empathetic teachers who really support and encourage us, and the facilities are top notch. The Student Union is also incredibly supportive, and they always have time for us.

Honestly I could not recommend UCLan anymore than I am. I wholeheartedly believe that the lecturers are there to help you learn and grow as a person rather to just keep up rankings. You are made to feel like an individual and not just another student.
