Course Summary

This course is an excellent opportunity to consolidate and advance your skills and knowledge in systems engineering, with a mechatronics emphasis. Completing the course successfully should increase your employability, as well as your suitability for further research or training options. Almost every business or organisation uses some sort of system to keep things working efficiently and productively. This system might keep information moving securely and efficiently, or it might ensure product distribution or service availability. A systems engineer is the all-important link between complex programming and technology, and its users, customers and stakeholders. So, you’ll need a firm knowledge and understanding of both sides, and the ability to take a joined-up approach to ensuring systems meet a wide range of needs reliably, efficiently, and in user-friendly fashion.

Course Highlights: We’ll support you as you develop a systematic knowledge and understanding of how advanced engineering concepts and design methodologies apply in the design of mechatronics-based equipment; We’ll encourage you to develop a mastery of digital signal processing for use in control applications; You’ll have the chance to explore advanced artificial intelligence techniques used in the design and control of automated machinery. We’ll work to help you develop a detailed understanding of how ‘total quality management’ applies to design, manufacture and project management. Key Features: The course is designed to meet professional institution standards in the UK and Europe; We’ll encourage you to undertake a work placement and/or an industry-based project; You can also choose from two alternative pathways: Mechanical or Electronics Systems Engineering; You can select common systems modules, whichever pathway you take; This course is based at the University of Bolton’s campus in the North West of England.

Career Opportunities: This course addresses contemporary issues in engineering and engineering management. In addition to helping to develop your technical knowledge and experience, this programme can give you greater confidence in your transferable and personal skills. These can include communication and team working, problem solving, logical thinking and analytical skills; all of which will be invaluable for your career success. Engineers are an integral part of our society and are often sought after for their analytical, computing and managerial abilities.
