Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering Technology with Honours
The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering Technology with Honours degree prepares students to be practical and industry-ready engineers who can create future electronics, robots, and autonomous systems. They will be able to design autonomous and intelligent equipment as well as provide new solutions to real-world challenges.
Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering Technology with Honours programme is ETAC accredited and registered at MQA. The duration of full-time study generally takes 4 years to complete. Students are required to complete 142 credit hours of courses that includes Engineering Technology core, Humanities, Technopreneur, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence Final Year Project, and Industrial Training. To educate graduates for the innovative design solutions that will be needed of them, the degree takes a systems approach, examining the entire system and breaking it down into subsystems and their constituent components. Graduate from the program can find their career path in mechatronics approach in production and manufacturing, holistic problem solving in a mixed discipline of engineering, simulation and analysis of digital manufacturing and emerging technology in production planning and manufacturing automation.
Provisional Accreditation by Engineering Technology Accreditation Council (ETAC).
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEO)
- Develop Product and applications in the field of Automation and Mechatronics and be able to use Engineering tools that will Enhance their Productivity.
- Capable of communicating and managing effectively in diverse areas of Mechatronics Engineering.
- Practicing professional ethics, life-long learning, and sustainable development for the betterment of society.
PROGRAMME OUTCOMES (PO)
The programme Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering Technology with Honours follows the 12 ETAC domains to produce graduates who can:
Knowledge: Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to defined and applied engineering procedures, processes, systems or methodologies in the field of Mechatronics engineering technology.
Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse broadly-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to Mechatronics engineering technology.
Design/ development of solutions: Design solutions for broadly-defined mechatronics engineering technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Investigation: Conduct investigations of broadly-defined mechatronics engineering technology problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
Modern Tool Usage: Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
The Engineer and Society: Demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to mechatronics engineering technology practice and solutions to broadly-defined engineering problems.
Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of mechatronics engineering technology solutions of broadly-defined engineering problems in societal and environmental context and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
Ethics: Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice.
Individual and Teamwork: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse technical teams.
