Mechatronics Engineering BSc degree integrates mechanical, electrical, computer and controls. Mechatronics engineering revolves around the design, construction and operation of automated systems, robots and intelligent products, which result from the integration of software and hardware.
Covering an extensive range of disciplines from dynamics and control, to stress analysis heat transfer and thermodynamics, a diverse array of engineering science-based subjects are experienced, providing technical expertise and integration of skill sets. Mechanical engineering takes advantage of parallel engineering disciplines, blending subjects such as materials science, electronics and software engineering with the core subjects.
By choosing to study Mechatronics Engineering at our school, you will gain a thorough understanding in how things work, why things work, how long they will work for, when they will fail and how to make them work for longer and better.
You will develop skills in CAD, control, dynamics, heat transfer, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, and more, all leading you to an ability to design and understand behaviour of mechanical products and technologies. This will allow you to specialise in technical streams within companies small and large, or develop a technical management career in national and multi-national companies.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will have acquired a good understanding of the engineering science and engineering design skills necessary to effectively develop new mechanically based products. The courses provide an excellent foundation for graduates wishing to progress to professional engineering status.
