Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics Engineering
Awarded by The University of Newcastle, Australia
Hollywood has fanned the flames of man’s fantasy of creating a mechanical man by churning out movies such as “Robocop” and “Transformers”. Of course while the audience lapped it up, the prevailing thought was that it was pure make-believe. Today with the giant leaps man has made in the area of mechatronics, IT and other related fields, that fantasy is on the verge of being a reality. Creating a part-man-part-machine being isn’t so far-fetched anymore. Except you would have to do it before Hollywood thinks of something else.
In a nutshell, mechatronics is mechanical, electrical and electronic systems combined with information technology. It is the science of developing new solutions to industrial problems using mechanical and electronic processes as well as computers. The Bachelor of Engineering may be conferred with Honours to high achieving students.
The Bachelor of Engineering programmes offered by the University of Newcastle, Australia (in conjunction with PSB Academy) are fully accredited by Engineers Australia (EA) and are recognised internationally under The Washington Accord.
