Mechatronics at Lincoln aims to give students the chance to design or manage systems produced through a combination of skills from the fields of mechanical and electrical engineering. This flexibility helps to promote a large variety of possible applications, helping students to learn how to manage the demands of the continuous evolution of technology as well as the job market.
The first two years of study will lay the common foundations in areas including mathematics, computing systems, mechanical, and electrical engineering, as well as information and telecommunication in the industrial automation sector. During the second year, students undertake the group Innovation Project module, which provides their first insight into modern mechanical systems.
Students have the opportunity to consolidate their practical knowledge in the third year while undertaking an individual project on an aspect of mechatronics engineering.
