Mechatronic engineers work in advanced manufacturing environments such as aerospace, biotechnology, robotics and agritechnology. With hybrid skills in mechanical, electrical and computer engineering, mechatronic engineers are in high demand for the jobs of the future.

Advances in automation applications, such as self-driving cars, are resulting in an increased awareness of the need for innovative mechatronic engineers. As the number of industries being disrupted by digital technologies grows, so do opportunities for mechatronic engineers. Industries such as transportation, agriculture and biomedical engineering all require the expertise of mechatronic engineers to continually improve society's quality of life.

As a mechatronic engineering student, you will design and maintain electronic and computer-controlled systems, including power generators, mining and chemical plant machinery, and intelligent machines such as unmanned aerial vehicles and autonomous robots. You will develop sound theoretical knowledge in the key disciplines of mechanics, electronics and computer systems.

What the course involves

In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.

As a mechatronic engineering student, you will design and maintain electronic and computer-controlled systems, including power generators, mining and chemical plant machinery, and intelligent machines such as unmanned aerial vehicles and autonomous robots.

You will develop sound theoretical knowledge in the key disciplines of mechanics, electronics and computer systems. Project work will culminate in a major design or research project in your final year of study.

In your final year of study you will undertake a major research or design project.

You will need to complete at least 12 weeks of engineering work experience during the summer breaks, in order to graduate from mechatronic engineering.
