Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronic)

University of Sydney

The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronic) combines mechanical, electronic and software engineering to enable you to create computer-controlled machines and consumer products. Underpinned by industry experience and management skills, you will be equipped to tackle the exciting challenges of this ever-evolving field.
As a mechatronic engineering student, you will discover first hand the technology that underpins robotics and autonomous systems, automated manufacturing and intelligent microprocessor-based products. You will develop skills in digital electronics, microprocessors, computer control, and software design, complemented by a suite of professional skills in management and communications.

Throughout this four-year degree you will cover a range of fields, including mechanism and machine analysis and design, electrical circuit theory and electronics, digital electronics and computer systems, power electronics and electrical machines, systems modelling and simulation, and robotic systems. Core units will provide you with a foundational knowledge in mechatronics, before allowing you to specialise in elective units in your third and fourth years. A 12-week internship will provide you with invaluable industry experience and professional networking opportunities. In your fourth year an embedded honours thesis will allow you to further specialise by designing a research project in an area that interests you.

Positioning you to take a lead role in an expanding and innovative field, the knowledge and experiences you develop will enable you to pursue a career across commercial product design and development, mining, biotechnology, computer system and software design, construction, defence, and consultancy.

Mechatronic engineers use their skills in a diverse range of industries, including automobile and household appliance manufacturing, mining, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, stevedoring, construction, agriculture, defence, computer system and software design, software product development consultancy, and commercial product design and development. Your mechatronic degree will equip you with the knowledge and expertise you’ll need to rise to the exciting challenges of this continually evolving field.
