Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronic Engineering) (Honours)


Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary engineering that combines mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science to design, build and operate smart machines. Mechatronic systems can be found in most industrial machines, many domestic appliances, as well as in intelligent machines such as robots and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Curtin Mechatronic engineering major offers a sound theoretical core in the key disciplines of mechanics, electronics and computer systems, as well as a strong practical emphasis in project and problem-based learning units which give a real-world focus to theoretical concepts. Project work is undertaken from the second year onwards, culminating in a major design or research project in the final year of study.

Mechatronic engineers work at the interface of mechanical devices and electronic control systems. Rapid advances in automation applications – such as self-driving vehicles and industrial automation – are driving an increased need for mechatronic engineers with expertise in mechanical, electronic and computer systems engineering.

The expansion of robotics and autonomous systems also means that industries offering careers in mechatronic engineering are expanding, including transportation, agriculture, medicine and health, biotechnology, mining, energy and aerospace.

In this course, you will develop sound theoretical knowledge in the key disciplines of mechanics, electronics, computer systems and control. You’ll learn how to apply this knowledge through projects in mobile robot communications and automation, pneumatic automation systems and machine control.

In your final year of study, you’ll undertake a major research or design project.
