Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechanical and Mechatronic) LHMR




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
UniSA is in the top ten in Australia for teaching1. With the focus of this degree on finding solutions for real-world engineering problems, you will study:
mechanics of materials and machines
fluid and energy engineering
materials and design for manufacturing
control systems and engineering maintenance
You ill also study innovative mechanical and mechatronic areas such as robotics, industrial actuation and automation and machine vision. In our industry-standard facilities you will apply engineering theory to real-world challenges. You ill also work on a major industry project in your final year.
Careers to consider:
Mechanical engineer: developing products from small parts to large plant, machinery or vehicles; can work on all stages of a product such as research, development, design, manufacture and installation
Systems engineer: installing, configuring, testing and maintaining operating systems, application software and system management tools; managing and monitoring all installed systems and organisational infrastructure; ensuring high levels of system and infrastructure availability
Mechanical engineering supervisor: overseeing the design of mechanical equipment, industrial processes and robotics; supervising the production, operation, repair and maintenance of equipment; managing staff, resources and work processes
Mechatronic device designer and development engineer: designing machinery with electronic and computer control systems, such as power generators, mining and chemical plant machinery, aircraft, robots, motor vehicles or cameras; developing high-technology engineering systems that automate industrial tasks
Automation engineer: developing automated machinery and processes to complete exact tasks; developing technologies for production and delivery such as robots for packaging, food processing or car manufacturing
What you'll learn:
In your first year you will develop a strong general foundation in engineering. As you advance in your studies you will discover innovative mechanical and mechatronic areas such as robotics, industrial actuation and automation and machine vision. In the compulsory 12-week industry placement you ill get to use the knowledge and skills you ive learned in a work environment.
At least half of the honours year involves a major project. You will take the lead as an engineer in a project environment, working with industry, a government organisation, or an academic research area.
