Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Mechatronic Engineering

Are you ready for one of the most hands-on mechatronic degrees in Australia? Do you want to learn how to retrieve a submarine from the ocean floor or build an autonomous drone?

This specialisation begins with the study of design principles, mechatronic systems, theory, communication skills and ethics. Your studies will incorporate the dynamics and materials of mechanical engineering along with electrical elements such as circuit design.

You'll explore concepts and practical applications in areas including artificial intelligence, signal and systems theory, and control theory. This knowledge will also be integrated with computer science as you learn how mechanical and electrical components work together.

Each year you'll complete a hands-on, project-based subject as part of a student team. This will involve designing and building a system to solve a mechatronics task.

Previous projects include a mini-rescue vehicle, autonomous drones, cars and sailboats, and submarine recovery. You'll also complete a robotics project in your third year of study.

Depending on the major you choose, employment opportunities can be found in product development and manufacturing, mining, aerospace and defence, transport, and government and industry research groups.
