Description

 

Choose Kingston’s Mechatronic Systems MSc

Mechatronics is an exciting, growing field that combines mechanical, electronic and control systems to create a complete device. It mostly relates to the mechanical systems that perform relatively fast and precise motions and therefore require sophisticated electronic devices and control algorithms. This hands-on course will help you develop the multidisciplinary knowledge that the fast-moving industrial, commercial and domestic sectors demand of their technical professionals.

The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

Key features

  • Academic teaching is complemented by presentations from industry experts and by industrial trips, such as the UK annual NI Days conference, held in London.
  • You will enjoy group assignments, supporting each other’s learning and have opportunities to develop your ability to work in teams. You will also benefit from an industry-relevant final project. The presentation, which is part of the final project, will prepare you for your job interview.
