The University of Sheffield, UK is inviting applications for Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering with a year in Industry BEng course starting in September 2021.
This specialist, four-year BEng will develop your engineering skills across key areas of mechatronics and robotics, including mechanical design, electronics, computing and control. You’ll also carry out an industrial placement to enhance your employability.
The course is designed with input from industry partners and our equipment is industry-standard, so you’ll be given the best start for your career after university.
The Courses in the department share a common first year. You’ll get a foundation in a broad range of mechatronic and robotic areas such as mathematics, computing, control, electronics and embedded systems. In the first year, you’ll learn how to control robotic systems and you will work as part of a team to design, analyse and test robots, autonomous vehicles and other complex electro-mechanical systems.
In your second year, modules cover advanced control theory, programming (C++), mechanical design and other engineering skills. You’ll then apply your skills to a practical project, where you’ll design a system using 3D CAD tools. You’ll then build the system in our iForge makerspace. This innovative facility gives you access to 3D printers, laser cutters and more.
Your third year will be spent on your industry placement. This will put your academic study into context, as you gain work experience and improve your employability prospects.
In your final year, you’ll take specialist modules that cover robotics and artificial intelligence (machine learning), and you can tailor your degree to suit your interests with a choice of optional modules.
The highlight of your final year is an individual project. You’ll develop your expertise in a range of engineering techniques and skills such as project management and communication.
Other options for you:
- Subject to achieving a satisfactory performance you can transfer from the BEng to the MEng degree at the end of the second year.
- You can choose not to undertake a year in industry
The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Measurement and Control
