Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Business

Robots can’t replace you if you’re building them.

By studying a Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Newcastle, you open yourself up to a wide range of engineering challenges and opportunities.You will become an engineer capable of solving the world’s greatest challenges. As a mechatronics engineer you may develop companion robots to help care for our aging population. You could design drones that assist in search and rescue operations following a natural disaster. Or, join our team of precision mechatronics researchers and work on medical solutions such as an endoscopic ‘pill robot’ for non-invasive 3D imaging and intervention.

What is mechatronics? Mechatronics engineering is concerned with the synergy of electrical, computer and mechanical technologies that lead to new solutions to industrial problems. Students study a diverse range of courses in areas such as technical design, automation and operational performance of the electromechanical systems used in industries such as defence, advanced manufacturing, mining and health. This means that you will learn a variety of mechatronics engineering concepts, skills and practices as part of your degree.

Why combine engineering with business? Complete these two bachelor degrees in just five years - compliment your technical skills with business acumen. Learn how to manage people and projects, start a consulting firm and manage a business. Prepare yourself for a leadership role with this unique package of capabilities.
