Comments about Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) - On Campus - Bedford Park - South Australia

  • Objectives
    The course has been designed to provide graduates with: * a strong foundation in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of engineering, particularly those relevant to the systematic development of robotic systems, * an awareness of social, economic and environmental aspects of (robotics) engineering, * an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a commitment to them, * well developed written and oral communication skills, * structured engineering work experience, * the ability to work professionally as an individual and as a member of multi-disciplinary teams, * an understanding of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so, and, * preparation for future management roles as professional engineers. Learning outcomes On completion of the award, students will be able to: * competently use professional skills and knowledge in the systematic development of complex digital and analog electronic systems, with particular emphasis on robotic systems and the associated hardware and software design, * apply their skills and knowledge in a professionally responsible manner, * communicate effectively with other engineers and the wider community using a wide range of communication technologies, * work professionally as an individual and in a team, * develop engineering solutions appropriate to the social, political, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied, * engage in the process of continuing learning needed to retain the necessary level of professional skills and knowledge in the areas of robotic and electronic systems engineering, and, * contribute successfully to project management.

  • Academic Title
    Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics)
  • Course description
    The Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) is the only robotics course in South Australia that is based on electronics and computer engineering (2 of the key elements of the latest robotics technologies).

    This course combines electronics, computer control, signal processing, and programming in the design, development and operation of robots, and their integration with other systems in the work environment.

    You will work directly with robots in industry as a robotics or system engineer.

    The University has also developed close relationships with a number of private sector and government organisations and all students undertake Flinders' nationally recognised 20 week industry placement.

    What is Robotics Engineering?

    Robotics is the science and technology of the design, development and application of robots in fields as diverse as manufacturing, mining and medicine.

    As robots increasingly take on repetitive and hazardous tasks in an ever expanding number of applications, the science of robotics is at the leading edge of modern economic and social life.
    Why study Robotics Engineering at Flinders?

        * All our Engineering awards have been designed in close collaboration with industry in order to meet future development needs. Students gain specialist knowledge in key areas and an integrated tool kit of skills that will enable them to meet the technical criteria required by industry and to engage professionally with on-going technical developments.

        * A distinctive feature of our Engineering awards is the nationally recognised industry placement program. More than 100 local, national and international organisations support the program, which provides students with 20 weeks of structured industrial work experience.

        *

          Students complete their final year of study having already gained a first-hand understanding of the role of the graduate engineer. They graduate with a proven on-the-job performance and many go on to work full-time with the company that provided their placement, or with another in the same industry.
        *

          The first year of this award is similar to the first year of our other Engineering awards allowing students to transfer between awards with minimal loss of time. For students without the necessary prerequisites, the Bachelor of Engineering Science award provides a pathway into this award.

        * We have an international reputation for our teaching, student support programs/services and research.

    Professional recognition

    This is a new course. It is expected that it will meet the requirements for accreditation by Engineers Australia and be recognised internationally.

    Career opportunities

    What can I do with my Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) degree?
    Study a language

    Flinders also offers all students the opportunity to major in a language in conjunction with any undergraduate course. The Diploma in Language is designed to provide students with competence in a chosen language that adds greater portability to their qualifications. You will complete a total of one extra year of study and graduate with both your chosen degree and the Diploma in Language. You can apply for this at time of enrolment.

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) requires four years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time).

    These courses are offered by the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics, within the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) may also be studied in a combined degrees program with Bachelor of Science (five years full-time or equivalent part-time).

    A double degree program Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics)/Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) requiring five years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time) is also available.

    PROGRAM OF STUDY  [November, 2008]

    To qualify for the Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) a student must complete 144 units with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, according to the program of study below.

    Not all topics are necessarily available in a given year.

    Upon completion of at least 102 units and with a GPA of 5 or more, students may undertake the Fourth Year "with honours" program. Other students will be able to complete the ordinary Bachelor of Engineering award.

    Students admitted to the "with honours" program and who complete it with a credit average or higher will be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours. Students who complete the "with honours" program with less than a credit average will be awarded an ordinary degree.

    Students who have successfully completed the first three levels of the program may exit with the Bachelor of Engineering Science.
