Mechatronics engineering is the integration of electrical, electronic and computer engineering with mechanical engineering, enabling the development of intelligent machines and advanced manufacturing and processing systems.
Areas of study within Mechatronics include mechanics, computer aided design and 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 strong competencies in electrical, electronic, computer and mechanical engineering, and be able to participate in and lead complex multi-disciplinary projects.
The Motorsports component of this course further develops engineering problem solving abilities as well as the technical, financial and management skills associated with manufacturing industries, especially the motorsports industry.
Students gain a solid understanding of the entire design, simulation and fabrication processes, and management issues associated with the manufacturing industries, with particular emphasis on motorsports. They have the opportunity to further develop competencies through the provision of extra-curricular activities to help progression into the motorsports industry.
This course is Commonwealth Government Supported for eligible students.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
This course is accredited by Engineers Australia.
During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 5 (ENS4111).
Mechatronics engineers have diverse employment opportunities in most sectors of industry, including product design and development, manufacturing, mining and resource, process control and automation, public utilities, road and transport, defence, aerospace and consulting.
Mechatronics Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Automotive Engineer
Students whose performance over the Mechatronics component of the course is of a high standard may be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree upon graduation.
This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
