Master of Engineering (Mechatronic) Mid-Year Entry
Make smarter machines
Mechatronic engineering combines mechanics, electronics and computing. Mechatronic engineers work comfortably across all three areas, often creating complex and intelligent technologies.
This intensive degree is suited to high-achieving engineering graduates, as well as engineers with relevant work experience. It is fully accredited by Engineers Australia.
What will you do?
Our Master of Engineering (Mechatronic) comprises a foundation year and an advanced studies year. You will:
- take advanced courses in mechanical engineering and programming
- gain hands-on mechatronic experience through small-group projects
- pursue specialist topics according to your interests and career goals
- build communication and project management skills
- undertake a significant research project.
To stay in the program, you’ll need to maintain a high grade point average. An exit path will be available if you’re only completing the foundation year. In this case you’ll receive a graduate diploma.
Where could it take you?
You might design and optimise micro-machines, craft the next generation of cameras or help build underwater exploration vehicles. You could maintain a fully automated robotic assembly line. Perhaps you’ll develop cutting-edge defence or medical technologies.
