Mechanical engineering is a diverse field that can be applied right across industry – from robotics and automation to manufacturing, automotive and energy. This degree captures that diversity, integrating mechanical engineering with computing, control, automation and actuation. During this program students will undertake specialised courses in their final year including robotics and machine vision systems, access the Engineering Mechatronics Laboratory and join the Mechatronic Engineering & Robotics Club. They will also prepare for the workplace with 12 weeks’ industry experience.
