A foundation for advanced engineering

Mechatronic engineering combines mechanics, electronics and computing. Mechatronic engineers work comfortably across all three areas, creating complex robotics and artificially intelligent technologies.

Our Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Mechatronic) is suited to engineering graduates and working engineers with relevant experience.

What will you do?

The program acts as a foundational year for the Master of Engineering (Mechatronic). It’s designed to upskill students for advanced studies and career opportunities. You will:

  • gain hands-on mechatronic experience through small-group projects
  • study heat transfer and thermodynamics
  • learn about dynamics, control and microcontroller programming
  • develop skills for research, communication, critical thinking, business and management.
