Mechatronics Major


Mechatronics engineering is the integration of electrical, electronic and computer engineering with mechanical and industrial engineering. It enables the development of intelligent machines and advanced manufacturing and processing systems.

Areas of study within mechatronics include mechanics, computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, analog and digital electronics, signal analysis, electro-mechanical systems, advanced materials, sensor technology, automatic control, robotics, system design and development and project management. Students will graduate with competencies in electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering. They will also be able to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects.

It's how we discovered that the quality of teaching here is the best in Western Australia. Being rated 5 stars by our graduates for 11 years in a row confirms that.

It's also how we learned from QILT that we’re Australia’s top ranked public university for student satisfaction.

And it's how we know that we're one of the best young universities in the world under 50 years old.

So the real question is, why not choose ECU?
