About Mechatronic and Robotic Engineering at University of Sheffield

This specialist, three-year BEng will develop your engineering skills across key areas of mechatronics and robotics, including; mechanical design, electronics, computing, intelligent systems and control.

Modules are informed by our world-leading research and designed with input from our industry partners, so you'll have the best start for your career. You'll use industry-standard equipment and learn about state-of-the-art applications in robotics, industrial control and advanced manufacturing.

Our courses 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, intelligent systems 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.

In your final year, you'll take specialist modules that cover robotics and artificial intelligence (machine learning), digital signal processing and rapid control prototyping. You can tailor your degree to suit your interests with optional modules.

The highlight of your final year is an individual project. Working closely with one of our world-leading academics, you'll deepen your technical knowledge and expertise. You'll develop a range of engineering techniques and skills that maximise your employability 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 could switch to the version of this degree with a year in industry.
  • You can choose to study a year abroad.

The content of this course is under review and there might be some changes before you start. We'll publish an up-to-date course description soon.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institute of Measurement and Control and the Engineering Council UK.
