You’ll use your existing knowledge of engineering theory and practice as the base to build new skills in this field such as embedded systems and control system design.
Using specialist equipment in our dedicated laboratories, you’ll learn to use Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, the industry standard for the development of effective control systems.
Combined with a suitable accredited undergraduate degree, the MSc degree would then satisfy the academic requirements of the UK Engineering Council for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Think of any modern manufacturing or utility supply process and you’re seeing automated assembly lines, robotic systems and programmable controls. These services need to be created, updated and maintained by skilled workers with the right qualifications. After graduation future roles include:
- automotive industries
- automation and control industries
- renewable energy industries
- engineering research
- engineering design and development
- engineering management
- engineering consultancy
The entry requirement for this course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at a 2:2 or above, or equivalent. We look for applicants to have a background in a relevant engineering field such as electrical, electronics, electrical & electronics, automation, control, automotive or mechatronics in order to be eligible for the programme.
Mechanical Engineering as a degree subject will not be considered for this programme.
We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient relevant work experience within the industry.
English language requirements
If your first language isn't English, you'll normally need to undertake an approved English language test and our minimum English language requirements will apply.
