Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics and Robotics)

Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus
‘While I wanted to study robotics engineering, I liked that Deakin offered a common first year, which gave me a chance to gain some experience in all engineering streams before choosing which one to specialise in. I was also impressed with the facilities available and all the resources I could use.
At uni I’ve had the opportunity to study overseas, at Massey University in New Zealand. It wasn’t something I initially planned to do, but when given the opportunity, it seemed too good to pass up.
What I enjoy most about my course is that it’s a challenge. It tests your ability to solve problems, as well as having a practical aspect, such as programming micro-controllers. The course has a perfect mix of theoretical and practical elements. Having more options with how I complete my study also allows for more flexibility, something I needed when planning to study overseas.
In the future I would like to build goal-orientated robots that can effectively communicate with each other and work together to complete complex, dynamic tasks, whilst being mobile and needing no human assistance.’
