  • Objectives
    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. Graduates will have competencies in electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering, and be able to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects. This course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects. 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.
  • Entry requirements
    Satisfactory performance in TEE Calculus or Applicable Mathematics, or equivalent, is required. TEE Physics is desirable. Students who have completed a TAFE Diploma or its equivalent in an allied engineering field may be admitted to the Bachelor of Engineering with advanced standing. Special admission requirements Note: Students who have not completed TEE Calculus or TEE Physics (or equivalents) will be required to complete bridging units during the first year of their studies.
