Mechatronics Engineering is a fast-changing discipline that blends mechanical, electrical and software engineering to develop automation and advanced manufacturing technologies.
You will develop in-depth technical knowledge combined with an understanding of broader issues, such as project management and intellectual property. You will learn to create and work with automated systems that feature computer control, such as robots, automobiles and CNC machines.
Opportunities for industry interaction include guest lectures and industry design projects using state-of-the-art facilities, with companies such as Ford, ABB, ANCA, Invertech, Sick Sensors and BAE Systems.
You will have access to world-class facilities, such as a state-of-the-art wind tunnel, alternative fuel engines, rehabilitation and tele-operated robots, motion tracking fluoroscopy, intelligent automotive platforms, service robotics, multi-copter autonomous platforms and intelligent large-scale irrigation and water management systems.
This course will provide you with a formal qualification in mechatronic engineering at the Masters level.
Mechatronics can lead to a wide variety of interesting careers, such as developing ‘smart’ products and systems in various industries. Job opportunities exist with companies that use advanced automation equipment and computer integrated manufacturing systems, in fields such as aerospace, advanced manufacturing, product development, computing and electronics, software systems, mining, renewable energy and biomedical engineering for companies like Bosch, Honeywell, CNC Design, Ford, Resmed, Siemens, BAE Systems and Invetech.
The Master of Engineering is professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 13 countries of the Washington Accord.
