MEng Mechatronic Engineering / Careers

Year of entry: 2022

Career opportunities

Careers Service
Manchester's award winning Careers Service will continue to support you two years after graduation.

Your mechatronic engineering degree from The University of Manchester will open up a world of opportunity, and the skills you develop will be sought across a wide range of industries.

For example, our graduates have gone on to forge successful careers in the development of microcontroller-based embedded systems; robotics; integration of renewable energy sources and the design of the associated power conversion systems.

Alternatively, you might progress into the development of automation and control systems for various industrial processes; automotive electronics; the design of electrical machines and the development of guidance and control systems for unmanned intelligent underwater; or ground and aerial vehicles.

Each year the Department hosts a careers fair, where you can meet with company representatives and discuss work experience options. These companies include Rolls-Royce, Alstom, BP,ABB, Jaguar Land Rover, National Instruments, Network Rail, Shell, and Siemens.

You will also acquire skills such as logical thinking, team working, report writing, analytical and presentation skills, and a high level of numeracy, all of which will leave you well equipped for a career either inside or outside the mechatronic engineering discipline.

What's more, graduate with a degree from us and you'll be in demand among the top graduate employers (most targeted university in The Graduate Market in 2020 - High Fliers Research ). With a year-long industrial placement under your belt, you'll be well placed to take the next step - either into the workplace or towards further learning.
