The Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) (Honours) course prepares students to cross the traditional boundaries between mechanical systems, machines, computer hardware and software, control and electronic design. Students can choose to focus their career in any one of these fields which may seek to meet growing employment demand for multi-skilled graduates from an industry that is pushing the limits of technology by exploiting the growing convergence of these fields. One such field of growth is robotic systems and mechatronics, encompassing automated assembly plants, smart systems and autonomous vehicles. Graduates of this course will have extensive skills relating to multi-disciplinary sectors of engineering.
Graduates are eligible for registration under Mechatronics branch with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
The indicative course fees shown here applies to students studying on-campus in Malaysia for the relevant year only. They are based on a standard study load per year. However, please note that fees are assessed according to a student’s study load in each semester, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted.
- Course objectives, course learning outcomes, course structure, units of study, career opportunities and professional recognition.
The following course educational objectives define the achievements of Swinburne graduates in their professional engineering career a few years after graduation.
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
At the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) (Honours) course, graduates should be able to demonstrate the attainment of the following Robotics and Mechatronics Swinburne Engineering Competencies, required for external professional recognition:
For the completion of Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) (Honours), students are required to complete a total of 32 units (400 credit points) consisting of:
Robotics and Mechatronics Major
* Outcome unit – completion demonstrates the attainment of course learning outcomes
† Honours merit unit – results are used in the honours merit calculation
In the final year, students will be required to undertake two Final Year Research Project units (capstone experiences) which helps meet professional accreditation requirements.
Students are required to complete EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering (non-credit point unit), a 12-week approved relevant industrial practical experience before the commencement of the last semester of study.
Robotics and Mechatronics engineering graduates may find employment as systems maintenance and design engineer, project planner, product designer or project manager in a range of industries including robotics, aerospace, chemical, defense, automotive, manufacturing, industrial research and the oil and gas sector.
Graduates are eligible to register as Graduate Engineers with Board of Engineering Malaysia (BEM) and to apply for graduate membership with Engineers Australia (EA).
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
