Robotics and mechatronics is at the forefront of technology and innovation -  gain the technical skills and knowledge to make a real difference.

Robotics and mechatronics engineering is the study and application of engineering to the design, development, maintenance and management of machinery that has electronic and computer-controlled systems. Examples include aircraft, robots, motor vehicles, and power generators.

Our courses teach and develop skills in working with high-technology engineering systems for the automation of industrial tasks or advanced electronic control systems.

Our students learn to solve problems in modern laboratories with cutting-edge software and equipment. Along with technical skills and knowledge, you will develop abilities in management, creative thinking, problem solving and communication to prepare for future leadership roles.

Career prospects

Our graduates compete for mid-level positions in industrial robotics or automation design, including careers in related fields such as consumer product design.

Robotics and mechatronics engineering graduates generally work with a multidisciplinary team to research, design, develop, maintain and manage high-technology engineering systems for the automation of industrial tasks to make jobs safer, easier, and more efficient. Newcomers to the field typically begin their careers as engineers before transitioning into managerial roles.
