Overview of the program

This course provides a solid grounding in the fundamentals of Mechatronics Engineering, including a broad understanding of mathematical and scientific concepts, control & automation engineering to solve engineering problems and also to apply in design & manufacture, installation and maintenance of many engineering systems. The course also covers a similar area to the first year and second year programmes of Bachelors of Engineering Degree with Honours (Mechatronics Engineering) (BE Hons) in order to provide the student with a basic knowledge and understanding the theory and practices to proceed at higher levels of the Degree course at Massey University, New Zealand

Carrier Prospects

There are numerous job opportunities for the graduates in Mechatronics engineering. Various companies that deals with production or use of chips and electronic circuits for various engineering applications such as electronic instrument, clocks, mobiles and electronic parts or involve in embedded system design appoints Diploma and Degree holders in their manufacturing plants. There are scopes of self-employment in the field of system design, installation and maintenance sector.

A wide range of careers

Mechatronics engineering graduates have a wide range of career options in New Zealand and overseas. They may work in areas like automotive, space, marine, manufacturing, automation and control, horticultural and agricultural-product processing, forestry, medical, health and many more. Positions include areas such as:

Multi-disciplinary

The mechatronics major at GISM campus is a practical, multi-disciplinary major. It teaches you about mechanics, electronics, software, and control. It emphasises the importance of a coherent and concurrent design process when developing a system.

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours programme is accredited by Engineering NZ, under the Washington Accord, allowing our graduates to work internationally

Project work could include:

A good fit if you:

All things are possible

Will you create the next life-saving device? Or the next iteration of search and rescue robot? Help companies automate their manufacturing processes? All these things are possible if you become a mechatronics engineer
