Course details

Summary

This four-year programme, comprising a blend of theoretical and practical work, ensures that you’re career-ready upon graduation.

A Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechatronics Engineering offers a broader range of study than most specialisations, ensuring that there’ll be variety throughout your time with us. The specialisation covers aspects of Mechanical, Electronics, Computer and Software Engineering. A typical programme tends to involve:

  • Engineering and professional fundamentals in your first year
  • An emphasis on Mechanical Engineering in your second year
  • A balance of Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineering in your third year
  • More freedom to choose from a range of electives alongside your final fourth-year project

Core Mechatronics topics tend to include software design, sensors and actuators, signal processing, analog and digital circuit design, microcontroller systems, systems modelling, digital control and industrial automation. These fundamentals give you the right knowledge to understand: the mechanical behaviour of robots and smart systems; the intelligence of motion sensors; autonomous systems; and prototyping and product design.

Where could this programme take you?

Your specialisation, personal interests and chosen electives can impact what you pursue. With quantitative, problem-solving, communication and technical skills, you’ll easily adapt to the technologically-driven nature of many industries. All our specialisations are accredited by Engineering New Zealand, a signatory to the Washington Accord, making our BE(Hons) a recognised engineering qualification in many countries.
