Mechatronics, Robotics and Embedded Systems

This is an MSc course in Embedded Systems with contributions from the fields of mechatronics and robotics. Embedded systems are microprocessor-based systems within a larger mechanical or electrical system that performs a dedicated function or task. They encompass a wide variety of products ranging from small mobile phones to large process automation installations. A practicing engineer in the field of embedded systems needs to have a specialised expertise in more than one of the engineering subjects of this multi-discipline subject. Our MSc is tailored to provide you with advanced learning in microprocessor systems that are at the heart of embedded systems, with additional contributions from the fields of mechatronics and robotics. This approach reflects the needs of the industry and is well supported by the range in expertise we have in our Department. The Department of Engineering and Design covers the full gamete of teaching in electronic, telecommunication and computer networks engineering as well as mechanical engineering and product design. Our academics are a cohesive group of highly skilled lecturers, practitioners and researchers. You'll benefit from your choice of supervisors to support a wide range of modern and multi-discipline Masters-level projects. Our teaching is supported by well-equipped laboratory workshops, using mostly the latest hardware and software available in universities.
