What is Mechatronic Engineering?
Mechatronic Engineers are involved in creating smart machines and autonomous systems, such as robots, self-operating cars, and automated industrial machines.
This evolving industry allows students to learn about engineering and software development to control sophisticated machinery. Understanding the conception process, design, construction, maintenance and integration of smart machinery and systems is integral to working as a Mechatronic Engineer.
Mechatronic Engineers can work in a number of industries such as manufacturing, automotive, mining, cargo handling and agriculture.
Mechatronic Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
