Field of Study

Mechatronic Engineering

Master of Engineering Science

This field of study provides a broad-based education in the basic principles of electrical, mechanical and computer engineering.

Mechatronic engineers integrate mechanical engineering with electronics, computer systems and advanced controls in order to design and construct products and processes.

Mechatronic engineers are typically involved with the design of automated and intelligent machines, including artificial intelligence systems, robotics, automated industrial machinery and avionics. They are employed in areas including research and development, mining, aerospace and defence, or by government and industry groups.

Electives cover areas including engineering analysis and design, engineering mechanics, dynamics and automatic control, signals and communication, and electrical hardware and computer software.
