Mechatronic Engineering is one of the more recently developed engineering disciplines. It combines mechanical engineering problem-solving and design skills with expertise in digital electronics and computer systems to produce advanced products and systems through automation and the use of robotics. The Higher Level Apprenticeship in Mechatronics is a part-time programme requiring attendance one day per week (9am-8pm) for three years. During this time you will complete the Ulster University Foundation Degree in Mechatronic Engineering.
Typically, weekly contact hours are scheduled for a minimum of 8.5 hours per week per semester. Student workload usually includes 2 to 3 assessments (a combination of coursework and or/ examination) per module. In addition to time in college apprentices are expected to undertake 2 - 3 self-study hours per week.
The teaching team consists of staff who are highly qualified with valuable industrial experience. Our staff are regularly trained to keep up to date with the changing needs of industry.
