Comments about Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) / Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) - 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 computer and electronic systems, robotics, and smart instrumentation and control systems, * an awareness of social, economic and environmental aspects of engineering, * an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities and a commitment to them, * high-level 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, * preparation for future management roles as professional engineers, * a deep understanding of research issues in a given area of investigation, * well-developed analytical and critical thinking skills appropriate to research, and * project management skills appropriate to research-oriented investigation.Learning outcomesOn 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 including embedded computer systems, monitoring and robotic systems, with a distinguishing emphasis on the hardware-software interface, * 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 computer and electronic systems engineering, * contribute successfully to project management, and, * undertake an independent research project competently.

  • Academic Title
    Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) / Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation)
  • Course description
    The Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) / Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) is a double degree combination that allows high achieving students to undertake a 5 year course of study in robotics and smart instrumentation

    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.

    It also includes advanced topics in areas such as embedded systems, image processing, real-time control and smart sensors.

    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), Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) 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 double degree program Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics)/Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) requires five years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time).

    The course is offered by the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics, within the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

    PROGRAM OF STUDY  [November, 2008]

    To qualify for the combined degrees Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics)/Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) a student must complete 180 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.

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

    A student who completes 108 units with a GPA of less than 5 will not be permitted to continue in this combined award. Such a student will be permitted to transfer to the ordinary Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics) award.
