KPT/JPT (R/523/6/0230) 03/20 - MQA/FA7519

Why study a Bachelor of Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering (Honours)?

There is increasing pressure on industries to deliver better products and services at reduced costs to remain competitive.

Robotics and mechatronics, central to addressing this demand, is crucial to the development of smart products and intelligent devices. It is the nexus between mechanical and electrical engineering, and is at the forefront of the Internet of things. As a robotics and mechatronics engineer, you could design the control systems for a myriad of applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to miniature robots for use in medical applications. Or you might take an everyday household product and turn it into a truly clever device.

Robotics and mechatronics engineers design devices and the programs that control those devices. They’re adept at handling vast amounts of data and creating systems that make sense of data in real time so that a fully automated manufacturing facility can operate safely and efficiently, or a car can drive completely autonomously. The applications of this field is virtually unlimited. With the knowledge and skills you'll have when you graduate, you’ll be able to design, develop, manufacture and operate the intelligent products and complex systems of today and tomorrow.

This course was designed in response to the fast-paced and growing needs of the industry and our lifestyle. It equips you with skills and insights sought after by the industry, and offers a choice of specialisation in automation or AI that’ll prepare you with the essential knowledge and skillsets to redefine success for your future organisation.

Duration

The course takes four years of full-time study to complete.


Course structure

The common first year lays a foundation in the basic sciences of mathematics, physics and chemistry and introduces the disciplines available to you for further study. You will learn to apply your developing maths and science knowledge to real-life problems and begin to understand the interaction between engineering and society.

Depending on academic performance and quotas, you can pursue a specific discipline from your second year of study.

Monash Malaysia campus students must undergo training in an industrial-based environment after their third year of study, as required by the Board of Engineers Malaysia’s Engineering Accreditation Council. After the 12-week training, students must submit a written report, detailing your work experience.

The Monash University Handbook has detailed information about the structure and requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering.


Career outcomes

Graduates can work in fields such as:

  • nanotechnology
  • robotics
  • bio-engineering
  • smart manufacturing
  • automation
  • automotive
  • deep analytics


Entry requirements

To enter Monash University, students must satisfy particular academic, English language and age requirements.

Industrial training

Classrooms provide the foundation for your engineering journey. Work experience amplifies your learning and hones your hands-on skills. As an engineering student, you must complete 12 weeks of approved engineering work in an industry-based environment after your third year. This is a great opportunity for you to apply what you’ve learnt to real-life situations and to work closely with industry professionals. You’ll enhance your technical and professional skills, build industry connections and acquire skills that’ll give you an edge in the competitive employment market.
