Mechatronic engineers push technology to new frontiers as they work to create smarter products, devices and processes. Mechatronic systems can be found in most industrial and commercial products, from cars and aircraft to medical and surgical devices. Computer scientists, software engineers, programmers and other computing professionals are experts on how technology works and how computing can address even the most complicated and intricate problems. This double degree combination will create graduates who are well placed to work within the burgeoning robotics and automation industries.
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.
Mechatronic engineers work in a range of industries, including mining, engineering technology, resources, remote operations, logistics, security and defence. Computing graduates can work as programmers, analysts, IT administrators or games developers. Both sets of skills place graduates well to work at the cutting edge of technology automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
