Major

Mechatronics

    What will I study?

    Overview

    You’ll develop a fundamental understanding of the mathematical modelling that dictates the behaviour, response and control of mechanical systems.

    You will also learn about electronic sensors, the instrumentation required to support them, and programming skills used for interfacing computers with machines.

    Your major structure

    You’ll complete this major as part of a Bachelor of Science degree. You can study engineering subjects from your first year with us, and you’ll have plenty of flexibility to explore other interests too.

    In your first and second years you will complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major, including foundational mathematics, engineering and computing subjects.

    In your third year, you will complete 50 points (four subjects) of study that is deep and specialised study in computing and software systems.

    Throughout your degree you will also take science elective subjects and breadth (non-science) subjects, in addition to your major subjects and prerequisites.
