Course Title: Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechatronic Engineering

Ordinary Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronic Engineering, or equivalent.

Note: Applicants with an “equivalent qualification” may be admitted by taking the following bridging modules:

  • Principles of Mechatronic Engineering 1
  • Principles of Mechatronic Engineering 2

Course Description

Are you curious, imaginative, active and inventive? Do you like problem-solving? The mix in this course of electronic, electrical, computer, robotics and mechanical will offer you lots of opportunities to thrive. Graduates can pursue careers in many fields, from pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and heavy industry to electronics and automation. You’ll study a wide range of subjects, from Algebra and Geometry, Engineering and Electrical Science, Mechanics and Computer-Aided Design to Instrumentation, Design Methodology, Automation and Computer Networks.

In Year 4, you’ll study advanced subjects such as Control Systems, Software Engineering and Industrial Robotics, and complete a Design Project.

IT Requirements

A HIGH spec is recommended (i.e. able to run Win 10, design packages such as Solid Works etc. should be able to run comfortably i.e. needs high RAM, larger SSD, Graphics acceleration, etc.). A Windows machine is required. Apple Macs are not recommended due to software package installation requirements.

I chose Mechatronic Engineering because I like observing things, trying to figure out how they work, what they are made of and how they work together.  The reason I picked Mechatronic Engineering is that it covers a broad section of Engineering. Every day I learn something new.
