Applied Mechatronic Engineering – Master of Research – funding options available

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that combines mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, computer engineering, software engineering, control engineering, and systems design engineering in the design and manufacture of useful products.

The course

Study this course and you will learn to:

  • Demonstrate the essential self-learning and communications skills necessary to be a successful engineer and researcher
  • Look at the global picture of robotic technology in agriculture – alongside the academics that brought you the Hands Free Farm
  • Develop software for robotics to create a working prototype
  • Apply modelling techniques to simulate a physical mechatronic system whilst developing simulations to inform the design of real world mechatronics

Why Harper Adams?

Our students see theory in action, are taught literally in the field, carry out experiments, conduct field trials, and then analyse their own samples in our ever-expanding laboratory complex, within a vibrant research and teaching environment – and all without leaving the campus.

Set on a 494-hectare farm, our Harper campus is home to the cutting-edge; such as our Agricultural Engineering Innovation Centre, where the future of farming is being pioneered with agricultural robots; the Elizabeth Creak Science Laboratories and the largest indoor Soil Hall in Europe – to name but a few. All our students have access to this technology and we wholeheartedly encourage exploration and research throughout your degree.

Speaking of research, Harper Adams is a recognised centre of research excellence with the 2021 Government Research Excellence Framework rating 60 per cent of the university’s research as “world leading” or “internationally excellent” – an almost ten per cent increase since our previous submission.
