The Master of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering) will deliver graduates with advanced knowledge and skills in robotics and mechatronics and control systems.
You will develop the skills to lead the introduction of new technologies and operating practices in advanced manufacturing and a range of other technical industries including mechanical systems design, mechatronics, and micro- and nano-technology.
This will be combined with advanced oral and written communication, teamwork, design, project management and research skills.
There is a market demand for engineers with advanced skills such as computer-aided design and the ability to develop and implement new processes in lean manufacturing to ensure efficient innovations can emanate from all levels of the workforce.
You will study high-demand areas including:
- advanced mechatronics system design
- advanced process control
- visual data processing and applications
- advanced robotic systems.
With a focus on project-based and multi-disciplinary learning, you will develop your professional engineering competencies in teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, communication and research.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Some project work may be based on the Bundoora campus.
This program incorporates blended learning which includes: face to face teaching, intensive and e-learning delivery modes.
In addition, students will undertake a comprehensive program of supervised laboratory work and industry visits to relevant organisations. The laboratory program will allow students to use specialist equipment in robotics and mechatronics for both testing and researching industry-relevant problems and solutions
Through common core courses you will engage with the wider engineering community enhancing your cohort experience and enable multidisciplinary learning.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
gram includes exposure to a range of Australian and international companies through industry visits and may include site visits.
Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program through membership of the Program Advisory Committee (PAC), which comprises industry representatives, academic staff and alumni.
Notable industry links for this program include:
- CNC Machine Tools
- Techni Waterjet
- The Walter and Eliza Hall of Medical Research
The program also facilitates networking opportunities with fellow Engineering Masters students from a range of disciplines and industries.
Students have access to the Engineering Learning Factory which is located in RMIT’s
You can work in mechanical systems design, advanced manufacturing, mechatronics, and micro- and nano-technology.
Graduates will be sought both in Australia and overseas. While there has been some decline in traditional manufacturing in Australia, there is steady employment in engineering in the construction, infrastructure, mining and building services. The food industry sector and automated production are seen as growth areas of employment of robotics and mechatronics engineers.
The demand for engineers with expertise in advanced manufacturing technologies is at the cusp of exponential growth.
You can work in mechanical systems design, advanced manufacturing, mechatronics, and micro and nano technology.
Professional recognition and accreditation
Engineers Australia accreditation will be sought for this program in accordance with accreditation timelines.
