Course Description

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that integrates mechanics, electronics, computer science and control theory. It is at the cutting-edge of creating smarter products, devices and processes.

Mechatronics engineers develop, improve and optimise products and their functionality. As a mechatronics engineer you will improve the performance, features and functionality of products like cars, aircraft systems, medical and surgical devices and dishwashers.

The processes and production lines used to make these and many other products are also mechatronic in nature.

The applications for mechatronics engineering are virtually unlimited and the need for professionals in this progressive field is very high and increasing.

Opportunities exist in nanotechnology, mining systems and processes, robotics and automation, aerospace systems and flight control, manufacturing systems and processes, intelligent systems for motor vehicles, software engineering, telecommunications, medical systems, bioengineering and many other developing fields.

Vast opportunities for research and development in the above areas also exist in academia, research institutions and advanced industry sectors.

Mechatronics engineers may also take on other roles in industry, in areas such as consulting, management and finance.

Curriculum

LEVEL ONE
Core Units

  • Computing for engineers
  • Mathematics for engineering
  • Engineering design A: lighter, faster, stronger
  • Engineering design B: cleaner, safer, smarter
  • Design C: engineering mobile applications

General Studies Unit

  • Leadership and Innovation

Elective Units
Select two units from:

  • Chemistry I advanced
  • Physics for engineering
  • Mechanics of fluids (level two)
  • Telecommunications (level two)
  • Digital systems (level two)
  • Introduction to Systems Engineering (level two)

Total: 48 points

LEVEL TWO

  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Electronics
  • Mechanics
  • Programming
  • Digital electronics

At level three, further knowledge is built on these fundamentals of Mechatronics Engineering to a professional level. These specialised areas include sensors, control, manufacturing and electrical energy systems.

At level four, students undertake units that draw together a wide range of fundamental knowledge in a mechatronics context such as robotics. This level allows for specialisation in wider areas of mechatronics through the selection of three elective units. Students have the opportunity to study a unit from another faculty as one of their electives and to undertake a substantial independent investigation in a chosen area. There is a strong emphasis on project work throughout the Mechatronics Engineering course. As with project units at the second, third and fourth level, many other units contain a strong project/design element.
