Mechatronic engineering combines mechanical, electronic and software engineering to create computer-controlled machines. Study mechatronic engineering and you could be designing the smart systems of the future.
Mechatronic engineering harnesses the power of mechanics, electrical systems and software to create computer-controlled ‘smart’ machines. It underpins the technology behind robotics and autonomous systems, automated manufacturing and ‘intelligent’ microprocessor-based technologies.
Mechatronic systems are all around us. When your washing machine senses the size of your washing and adds just the right amount of water, that’s mechatronic engineering. Mechatronic engineers created the anti-lock braking system in your car and the controls that take the elevator to the floor you select.
With skills and in-depth knowledge in computer hardware, software and networking, mechatronic engineers are versatile problem solvers.
Our Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronic) should be at the top of your preference list. Here’s why.
