Course details

CRICOS course code: 079772C

Level of study: Undergraduate

Summary

Are you ready for an exciting career which lets you design, build and implement smart mechatronic systems which can be deployed within a wide range of engineering companies? In the Bachelor of Engineering (Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics) (Honours) degree, you will learn about mechatronics, robotics, advanced materials, automated systems and the simulation and modelling of manufacturing processes.

As automation replaces people in various industry sectors, engineers with experience in robotics and mechatronics will be sought after. This degree will prepare you to work in a wide range of industries and as an RMIT graduate, you'll demonstrate skills across mathematics, engineering, mechatronics, design and creativity. You'll also be able to communicate your ideas to others, as well as continue to learn as a professional engineer.

Your studies will include areas such as electrical and electronic system design, machine intelligence and robotics, computer programming and advanced materials. The emphasis is placed on the need to view a manufacturing system as being made up of people, machines and information.

You'll have the opportunity to design creative solutions with inspiring and sustainable design and build projects. You'll also take part in the Engineers Without Borders Challenge - a humanitarian-focused course offered in all RMIT engineering degrees.

A feature of this degree is the access you'll have to state-of-the-art facilities, such as the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct which combines RMIT's expertise in technology and design innovation.

To ensure you graduate job ready, you'll also have an opportunity to undertake a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective.

Why study advanced manufacturing and mechatronics at RMIT?

RMIT University is ranked in the top 150 universities in the world for engineering (mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing). Get involved in high-tech manufacturing processes and the manufacturing of high-tech products. Studying advanced manufacturing and mechatronics at RMIT offers the following benefits:

Prepare yourself for employment
With the opportunity for industry placements undertaken locally or internationally, you’ll be work-ready when you graduate. There are also opportunities to tackle research projects in partnership with industry, like the Engineers Without Borders Challenge Scholarship.
Access to specialised facilities
You'll have access to state-of-the-art facilities such as the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct which combines RMIT's expertise in technology and design innovation.
Hands-on learning experiences
Through hands-on learning and workplace experience, you'll have the opportunity to work in design and development teams, as is expected in many industries.

Career

Opportunities for advanced manufacturing and mechatronics engineers are as diverse as the manufacturing industry itself.

Areas of employment are broad and may include the automotive and aerospace industries, the food and beverage industry and engineering and management consultancies. Within these organisations as a graduate you can take on roles such as product design engineer, process engineer, facilities manager, production manager, quality engineer and automation specialist.
