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.
All of our courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Measurements and Control.
