Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours)

Deakin’s Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours) prepares you to be an industry-ready professional engineer, capable of creating the electronics, robots, and autonomous systems that power our future.

With ground-breaking facilities and a strong focus on project-based learning, we’re changing the way students train to become engineers.

Interested in joining aspiring engineers in some of the most advanced facilities in Australia?

Robots won’t be the only thing you build when you study mechatronics with us. You’ll learn how to design, program, and integrate electronic devices with mechanical designs to deliver innovative solutions as diverse as anti-lock brakes, self-driving cars, and even artificial hearts.

Mix electrical, mechanical, and robotics engineering into a single degree and you could land a career shaping the innovative robotics systems of the future.

Delve into mechatronics engineering principles, then take your learning even further with opportunities to put your skills into practice. Through project-oriented design-based learning (PODBL), you’ll be challenged to apply theory and science to industry-relevant projects such as the automation of industrial processes using robotics and other cutting-edge technologies, flying drones, 3D printers, robotics, and self-driving cars.

Work experience

Through SEP499 Professional Engineering Practice, you’ll gain industry experience by completing at least 60 days (12 weeks fulltime) of practical work experience in an engineering workplace, developing and enhancing your understanding of the engineering profession, possible career outcomes, and the opportunity to establish valuable professional networks.
