  • BEng (Hon), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
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. **Special Features** - The first three semesters (one and a half years) of the undergraduate courses in the department share the same content. This gives you the opportunity to transfer between our courses if required. - You will meet with your Personal Tutor on a weekly basis. - We are particularly excited about the Microcontroller/Embedded Systems Project in which you will design and build the electronics for an autonomous robotic buggy - then you will race it!

For a great student experience Manchester is the place to be, the main student halls only a ten minute magic bus ride from uni, be out of bed and in lectures within half an hour (great after a night out!) With the biggest students union in the UK there is always something to do, try out a 'Why Not Wednesday?' or join a society, there's more than 400 to choose from, including Quidditch! The city centre has all sorts of surprises, loads of opportunity for shopping, sightseeing and eating out. The Northern Quarter is somewhere to be explored for newcomers will a whole host of quirky bars, pubs and restaurants. The city centre is again only a 20 minute magic bus ride from halls. Manchester is is where you want to be!

    Go somewhere else unless you want to go into teaching/research for engineering. Great if you want a job though, employers love manchester uni for some reason, probably because it proves you have the capacity to learn a load of stuff that you don't need to learn
