The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours) is concerned with the synergy of electrical, computer and mechanical technologies that lead to new solutions to industrial problems. You might build robots, or unmanned aircraft, design bionic implants or even energy harvesting equipment. Mechatronics engineers are involved in the technical design, automation and operational performance of the electromechanical systems used in industries such as defence, advanced manufacturing, mining and health.
Areas of study: Advanced control design, autonomous systems, electronics design, embedded systems design, mechanical design and software design, robotics, sensors and actuators, vehicle dynamics.
Elective pathways: All University of Newcastle Engineering (Honours) programs facilitate the study of a wide range of elective pathways to customise our students' learning experience. These can deepen or broaden the knowledge base of the core program, depending on the student's desires and interests. Visit the University of Newcastle website.
Career opportunities: Industrial automation engineer, robotics designer, smart infrastructure designer, avionics engineer. Industries include robotics, aerospace, chemical, defence, automotive, marine, manufacturing, mining or finance.

If you completed higher education or partial higher education studies your grade point average can be converted to a selection rank to be used for admission purposes: visit the University of Newcastle website.
If you studied vocational education and training, the type of qualification, whether or not you completed it, and if it was graded or competency-based, will all be taken into consideration to assess your eligibility for admission: visit the University of Newcastle website.
If you haven't completed any formal secondary, VET or higher education studies we offer a range of options to get you on the pathway to your dream degree: visit the University of Newcastle website.
If you have already successfully undertaken relevant study at another higher education institution or from the TAFE/VET sector, you may be granted credit on enrolment in a program. This is in addition to using that study to help determine your rank and eligibility to enter a program at the University of Newcastle. Visit the University of Newcastle website.
