Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics)
Mechatronics engineering is the integration of electrical, electronic, and computer engineering with mechanical and industrial engineering enabling 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, and be able to participate in and lead complex multi-disciplinary projects.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
Additional Course Information
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 4 (ENS4111).
Engineers Australia has granted accreditation to this course.
Mechatronics engineers have diverse employment opportunities in most sectors of industry including product design & development, manufacturing, mining and resource, process control and automation, public utilities, road and transport, defence, aerospace and consulting.
Students whose performance over the four years of the course is of a high standard may be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree.
Engineering (Mechatronics) / Engineering (Motorsports) double degree is available in this discipline.
Applicants who do not meet the mathematics prerequisite for this course should consider applying for the Bachelor of Technology (Electronic and Computer Systems) or the Bachelor of Technology (Motorsports) as a pathway.
This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
