INTRA Programme BEng Mechatronic Engineering

Two students collaborating on a prototype
BEng Mechatronic Engineering


The Mechatronics BEng degree combines Electronic, Mechanical and Software engineering covering theory and practise with an emphasis on teamwork and communication skills.

Programme Outline

In the first three years of study (i.e. prior to their INTRA work placement) Mechatronics students complete  three significant team projects;  one in their first year (a mechatronic project combining mechanical,  electronic and software elements)  and two in their third year (a mechanical design-and-build project, and an embedded-system programming/mobile robotics project). They complete modules in Design and CADD (using SolidWorks), Object-Oriented Programming,  Data Analytics for Engineers  (including Statistical Quality Control),  Image Processing, Measurement  and Signal Processing and Pneumatics and Control.

Work Areas

They have the ability to work in  the following areas:

  • Product/Process design
  • Automated production systems
  • Process control systems
  • Robotics
  • Embedded systems integration
  • Embedded systems programming
  • Quality assurance/management
  • Instrumentation and calibration
  • Research and development
  • Test engineering
  • Technical documentation

INTRA Internship

Students are required to complete a six-month INTRA placement at the end of third year, from April to September.
