About this course

Mechatronic Engineering draws on expertise and professional skills of various fields to evolve into a very specific specialisation in its own right. Modern industrial and technological development has seen the evolution of complex, intelligent machines that have moving parts, controlled by software-dependent electronic devices that lead to the emergence of this multi-disciplinary engineering profession.

In Mechatronic Engineering, new technologies in automation and robotics are explored and utilised, allowing tasks in hazardous environments or precise positioning to be accomplished for the benefits of health, safety, society and economy. There is indeed growing interest and demand in the industry for professional Mechatronic Engineers in recent years.

This course aims to ensure that students will acquire the basic knowledge and understanding of the scientific base of mechatronics that will permit them to practise as professional mechatronic engineers. Students will develop sufficient competence in mathematics to allow analysis of complex problems in mechatronics and develop an understanding of the development of mechatronic systems and manufacturing process.
