Other Information

Mechatronics is an emerging engineering discipline based on the integration of mechanical, electrical and computing technology for advanced engineering applications. Engineers with a specialisation in mechatronics are at the forefront of developments in defence, space, medical, transport, mining and manufacturing industries. Courses include System Dynamics, Control Systems, Computer Vision and Robotics. This major is aligned with research on autonomous robotic systems (aerial, terrestrial and submersible), systems theory and control and computer vision, with applications in, for example, aged care, environmental and infrastructure monitoring and automated driver assistance systems.
