This programme is specifically designed to provide:

  • High-quality undergraduate engineering education by providing students with a curriculum that is firmly grounded in Mechatronic engineering fundamentals.
  • A study of basic engineering sciences and fundamentals of mechanical, electrical, electonics and computing engineering. Students will be to integrate these four diverse.
  • The technical skills to design, analyse and test “intelligent” products or processes that incorporate suitable controller, sensor and mechatronic devices for robotics and automation.

PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

  • Be working as a practicing professional engineer in the field of Mechatronic Engineering.
  • Have progressed in their Mechatronic Engineering careers or other chosen profession and/or are engaged in advanced studies in Mechatronic Engineering or other related fields.

PROGRAMME OUTCOMES

The students, upon completion of their study, should attain the following outcomes:

  • Ability to gain and apply basic principles of Mathematics, Science and Engineering.
  • Ability to identify engineering problems and apply basic engineering principles to solve them.
  • Ability to recognize and apply suitable tools and techniques for engineering practical applications.
  • Ability to investigate complex engineering problems using research techniques.
  • Ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems.
  • Ability to communicate effectively and professionally.
  • Ability to comprehend and demonstrate current good practices of engineering for sustainable development.
  • Ability to practice safety, health, social, cultural, legal and environmental responsibilities as an engineer.
  • Ability to execute the responsibilities of an Engineer professionally and ethically.
  • Ability to function effectively as an individual or in a team.
  • Ability to recognize the need for, and be able to engage in independent and life-long learning
  • Ability to demonstrate and apply the knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles.

Internship

Industry placement with a suitable organisation for a minimum period of 12 weeks, after completing Year 3 and before the commencement of Year 4.

Year 4

The final year Engineering modules provide the necessary industry application technological skills which will become very useful for employment upon graduation. These modules include Mechatronic Design, Fluid Mechanics and product creation technology. Your personal and professional development is enhanced by the module in Engineer in Society and Engineering Project Management. You will enhance your technical capability and understand how to innovate, generate and manage the creation of new ideas.

The Project Phase I (Investigation) in Mechatronic Engineering will enable students to take on R&D with commercialisation. The Mechatronic Engineering Project Phase II (Implementation) also develops the academic and practical aspects of your chosen areas of study and reinforces your independent learning skills. This is where you will demonstrate higher level critical thinking, analysis and solutions development skills which will enhance your employability.
