The Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics)(Honours)/Bachelor of Computer Science course provides students with a focus on the application of advanced computing techniques on the design and operation of robotic and mechatronic systems. It combines mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and electronic and software engineering in the design, development and control of diverse systems used in the manufacturing, medicine and the service industries. Graduates of this course will have extensive skills in integrating engineering with software development, particularly relating to multi-disciplinary projects, and will have developed experience in working on team projects. They will also have well-developed oral, written and graphical communication skills.
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 learning outcome, 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 the Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) (Honours) will be able to:
Students who successfully complete the Bachelor of Computer Science will be able to:
At the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) (Honours) / Bachelor of Computer Science 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) / Computer Science, students are required to complete a total of 40 units (500 credit points) consisting of:
Core units for BEng (R&M) (Hons)
Core units for Bachelor of Computer Science
Software Development Major
* Outcome unit – completion demonstrates the attainment of course learning outcomes
† Honours merit unit – results are used in the honours merit calculation
The first two years of the recommended study sequence are common between the single-degree program and the double-degree program. This allows students with a suitable level of achievements to make a transition to the double degree.
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.
Graduates from this course can take up careers in a wide spectrum of industries including robotics, automation, aerospace, chemical, defence, automotive and manufacturing where complex software plays a major role, as well as in businesses that require extensive computer support, such as banking and commerce. Contributions can be made to these industries in a variety of roles including design engineer, systems maintenance and design engineer, software engineer, project planner, product designer and project manager.
Graduates are eligible to register as Graduate Engineers with Board of Engineering Malaysia (BEM) and to apply for graduate membership with Engineers Australia (EA) and the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
