What will I learn?
Mechatronics engineering is the design and maintenance of machinery with electronic and computer control systems, such as aircraft and power generators, to work in the high-tech fields of automated systems and robotics. Engineers who can manage the disciplines of mechanical, electrical and computer engineering simultaneously are becoming essential across all industrial sectors: manufacturing and process industries, primary production and mining, and the service and health industries. If you are interested in technical and engineering work, mechanical equipment such as robotics, physics and mathematics, a career in mechatronics could be for you.
Explore your options
Your engineering degree features common units in the first year that combine broad foundation principles with a wide range of major choices, giving you flexibility and options before you choose your career specialisation.
Why choose this course?
Mechatronics engineering is the hybrid discipline of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering, and computing. This degree provides you with skills in all these disciplines to enter the growing industry. You'll benefit from our close links with industry and may be involved in projects such as QUT Motorsport and the aerospace avionics Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Outback Challenge.
Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.
All graduates are eligible for an Engineers Australia (EA) membership. EA is a signatory to the Washington Accord, which permits graduates to work in various countries across the world. This course is recognised internationally in the engineering profession, giving QUT graduates more career opportunities overseas.
