Course details

Summary

The BE(Hons) programme has accreditation by Engineering NZ as a professional engineering degree under the Washington Accord. Our practical learning environment, combined with having more work experience than other New Zealand engineering qualification will see you develop the skills that employers are looking for.

What is it Like?

Mechatronics engineers are in demand as more and more products and processes are becoming smarter.

What is mechatronics?

Mechatronics deals with the integration of mechanical, electronic, software, and control engineering. As a mechatronic engineer you will have an understanding of how these work together, to help you design practical and innovative intelligent products and processes.

Become a confident, problem-solving employable engineer

This multidisciplinary degree gives you the skills, knowledge and confidence to slot into general industry, to design smart products and to automate their manufacture. It balances the need for a broad engineering education with the demand that, when you graduate, you are comfortable with the practical nuts and bolts of engineering. Through intensive courses and challenging design projects, you will become confident and competitive in product innovation, prototype development and all aspects of mechanical and electronic engineering.

Develop exciting projects, while you study

Some examples of projects undertaken by our students include heavy-duty search and rescue robots, assistive robots for stroke rehabilitation, large scale 3D printers, composite electric vehicles, secure RFID chemical-storage systems, humanoid robots and more.

Earn more

A Ministry of Education report, undertaken over nine years, showed that those who complete a qualification in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics field of study have high relative earnings after they complete their study. Earnings can be substantially more than other graduates. Engineering and building-related fields have the largest earnings premiums over the national median of young graduates.

Pathways

If you do not have the required subjects Massey University offers various engineering preparatory pathways which will bring you up to the necessary standard
