Course summary

Robots and automated machines never get tired. They can work 24 hours a day, in hazardous places and are much more accurate and consistent than any human. The exciting world of mechatronics and automation engineering has the important task of bringing these machines to life, maintaining them, fixing them when they malfunction and designing and building new models.

This course provides you with a broad introduction to the issues encountered and techniques required in developing advanced mechatronic products and automation systems. This course trains you to: lead mechatronic and automation product development, contribute as team members to future mechatronic product development, provide expertise as mechatronic “specialists”.

Careers

Mechatronics and automation are everywhere in industry. Robots are a key part of most production and manufacturing companies and many other organisations across the world. Consequently, mechatronics and automation career opportunities are appearing quickly, looking for skilled, specialist staff.

Working in this type of engineering can bring an immense sense of fulfillment. If you take a project from inception to completion, the rewards can know no bounds. Projects in your role could often be complicated and push your own ability, especially when so many different components are involved. You can also get a great deal of satisfaction from knowing that you are helping less humans have to work in potentially dangerous places.
