Mechatronics engineering (Bachelor of Engineering - Honours)



This major prepares you to be a practical and industry-ready engineer capable of designing the electronics, robots and autonomous systems of the future. You will learn how to design, program and integrate electronic devices with mechanical designs that communicate with other computers, devices or even cloud-based systems. You will be able to deliver innovative solutions to real-world problems and design autonomous and intelligent devices ranging from self-driving vehicles to biomedical systems.

    ^ Students are encouraged to complete this unit in Trimester 3 of the third year of study. Must have successfully completed STP010 Career Tools for Employability (0 credit point unit)

    # Students who have not completed Mathematical Methods (or equivalent), will be required to undertake the unit SIT190 in the first trimester of their Engineering course.

    Students enrolled online for these units are required to attend campus mode conducted activities during the corresponding Intensive Activities in a trimester. Attendance at campus mode activities is linked to assessment requirements within the Engineering programs, failure to attend will result in not meeting the hurdle requirement of the respective assessment. Thus, a fail grade shall be awarded for the respective affected unit(s) for that particular trimester.
