- Students are to follow the requirements of the Handbook for the year they commenced the course.
However, the subject links below do not contain the subject information for the current year. You can view current subject information through the new Course Handbook.
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronic Engineering) | 2017
Mechatronic engineering is the combination of mechanical, electrical and computer technologies. These engineering disciplines complement each other to design and realise products, systems and processes which are more efficient, intelligent and cost effective than their predecessors.
The course is designed to give students high quality training in many rapidly developing fields based on integrating mechanical with electrical and electronics components through software. Just to name a few, these fields include digital electronics, manufacturing, information technology and robotics.
Double degrees are also available.
