O que eu aprenderei?

Engineers design the future. They provide innovative solutions to meet the needs of our modern world. From buildings and bridges, to apps and smart devices, to pharmaceuticals and renewable energy, engineering feats are everywhere.

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (BE(Hons)) is a four-year professional degree. The degree is accredited by Engineering New Zealand, allowing our graduates to work as professionally qualified engineers all over the world.

Mechatronics is the field behind the "Smart Products and Systems" that increasingly dominate many aspects of our lives. It sits at the intersection of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering and combines sensors, software, and motors to create innovative and amazing new devices.

These mechatronic systems can be found manipulating the smallest bits of matter, in spacecraft, as well as throughout your home and town. From smart phones and TVs, to smart energy grids to smart cars and smart medical care and devices. They are everywhere you look, making life better, greener, healthier, more productive, and more interesting.

The vast discipline of Mechatronics Engineering does not stop at the visible world. Micro and nano electro-mechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) are an ever increasing branch of mechatronics research and technology for applications such as atom-scale microscopy and spectroscopy, micro and nano fabrication, big data storage, sensor technology, medical drug delivery, and many more.

How do I plan my degree?

The first year of the degree is called the Engineering Intermediate Year and comprises nine courses (120 points) which is made up of:

  • five compulsory courses and
  • four further Intermediate Year courses which vary depending on which Engineering discipline you want to specialise in.

The Intermediate Year is followed by three Professional Years of study in one of the Engineering disciplines. Entry to the Professional Years is limited and based on your performance in the first year(s). All students must also complete one compulsory course in their First Professional Year, and 800 hours (approximately 100 days) of practical work placement.

Career opportunities

Graduates with a Mechatronics Engineering degree can take up careers in a wide spectrum of industries where the interaction of software and a physical system plays a major role, including the robotics, aerospace, chemical, gaming, internet/cloud/software, defence, automotive and manufacturing industries. Mechatronics graduates also work in businesses that require extensive computer infrastructure and algorithms, such as banking and commerce.

Within these industries, graduates may be design engineers, software engineers, project planners, product designers or project managers.
