41099 Introduction to Mechatronics Engineering

6cp; Online, and face-to-face classes i.e. Lec (1hr/week) and lab/tutorial (2-3 hr/week)



This subject assists students to develop and apply fundamental knowledge and skills required to begin designing and creating mechatronic systems. It provides an early scaffolded introduction to electronic components and coding in a mechanical/mechatronic engineering context. It provides students with a ‘studio-like’ project, in which their thinking and creativity is stretched and challenged. In this way students are introduced to the ‘studio’ approach which they increasingly encounter later in their studies. It is relevant to students’ studies and work experience.

Typical availability
