Overview
Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of mechatronic engineering with mathematical and computer sciences. The mechatronic program combines courses in mechanical engineering and electrical and electronic engineering together with courses in computing, mechatronics and robotics. It includes the study of design, microprocessors, electronics, sensors, actuators, signal processing and control. There is a strong focus on design and project work throughout the program. The mathematical and computer sciences program includes a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses.
Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronic) / Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard fulltime duration of 5 years.
Conditions
Condition of enrolment
Interruption of program: Students must apply for permission from the Executive Dean or delegate before taking a Leave of Absence. Any extension of the leave without approval will result in the loss of place in the program but an application may be made to be readmitted to the program subject to the admission procedures in place at the time.
