    The Master of Engineering (Mechatronics) is a 2–3 year degree (full-time) depending on your prior study.

    Course structure

    First year

    In your first year (or equivalent) you’ll complete foundation engineering subjects – tailored to students from a non-engineering background. If you’ve completed the Mechatronics Systems major in your bachelor’s degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year.

    Second and third year

    In the second and third year of the program (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a mechatronics engineering student, you will blend mechanical, electrical and software engineering to develop automation and advanced manufacturing technologies. You will harness computer control in areas such as robotics, vehicles and CNC machines.

    You’ll undertake an industry, design or research project and gain the skills and knowledge to practice as a professional engineer.

    Industry, design and research subjects

    Internship subject

    Build your skills and work experience through our academically credited Internship subject. Run over 10-15 weeks, you could intern at an electronics, automotive, robotics or manufacturing company.

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

    Work on a real-world innovation challenge with an industry mentor through our Creating Innovative Engineering subject.

    Mechatronics Capstone project

    Conduct research alongside our world-leading mechanical engineering researchers in our Mechatronics Capstone Project. Work on an industry partnered project, or pursue your own exploratory research. You’ll have the opportunity to present the findings to the public at our annual engineering showcase, the Endeavour Engineering and IT Exhibition.
