Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronic)

Stream Overview


The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronic) places strong emphasis on the development of skills in digital electronics, microprocessors, computer control, and software design in a mechanical engineering environment. Management and communications are an integral part of this course.

Course Requirements


To meet requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronic), a candidate must successfully complete 192 credit points, comprising:

  1. 36 credit points from the Engineering Core Table, including all required units
  2. The Professional Engagement Program (PEP). Details of the requirements of PEP can be found on the Faculty of Engineering Student Portal
  3. 108 credit points from the Mechatronic Stream Core Table pertaining to the specialist stream being undertaken, including all required units
  4. A minimum of 48 credit points of additional units from the Mechatronic Stream Specialist Table pertaining to the specialist stream being undertaken, including satisfying any additional requirements specified for the Specialist Table
  5. A maximum of 6 credit points of general electives may be taken


The completion of a major is not necessary. If a student chooses to do a major, aligned majors can be completed within the 192 credit points described above.
