Mechatronic Engineering is a field that integrates various components in different engineering disciplines – such as electronics, computer and mechanical engineering, among others – to meet the increasing demands of complex and sophisticated industries.
In mechatronics, students are equipped with the essential skills in industrial technology and learn a combination of mechanical, electronic and computer science techniques to design, fabricate, assemble and maintain automation and modern manufacturing systems.
The programme encompasses three major engineering fields, with a well-balanced focus on Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical and Robotics and Automation Engineering. Students are furnished with the fundamental skills in analysing and designing complex systems to serve the needs of the industry and to meet challenges posed by emerging technologies. The mechatronic laboratories are well-equipped with the latest equipment and software packages to enhance the students’ learning experience and expose them to the latest technology in the market. The course aims to provide the industry with a new generation of engineers armed with interdisciplinary skills essential in managing modern engineering tasks such as designing, maintaining, calibrating, selecting, and procuring advanced integrated systems.
To increase their employability, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Placement Training Scheme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years. This allows students to learn and familiarise themselves with a real-life working environment. Apart from that, students also undertake a research and development project in their final year of study.
The duration of the programme is 4 years.
In each year there are two long-semesters consisting of 14 weeks of instruction with 2 weeks of examinations, and one short-semester consisting of 7 weeks of instruction with 1 week of examinations. The long-semesters start in January and May, while the short-semester starts in September.
In the months of November & December students undergo industrial training under the Co-Operative Placement Scheme to learn and to familiarise themselves with real life working environment. In addition, students also undertake a research and development project in their final year.
The number of contact hours per course per week depends on the credit and teaching methodology of each course. Each credit is approximately equivalent to 1 hour of class, or 2 hours of labs per week.
The teaching and learning strategies and assessment are designed depending on and according to the nature of course or topic being taught or investigated. The school of Engineering implements different methods and styles of teaching and learning and assessment to ensure the successful achievement of the learning outcomes of its programmes, that includes
- Ordinary classroom lectures
- Group tutorials
- Laboratory works
- Seminars and eforums
- Directed and self learning
- Invited guest lectures
- Industrial visits
- Subject to School discretion after reviewing transcript & syllabus. Max credit transfer of 30% of the programme total credits
Generally, Mechatronic Engineers ﬁnd their place in industries where there is a potential for improvement through the integration of computer, electrical hardware and mechanical systems. As they possess the fundamental skills in Electrical, Mechanical and Robotic Engineering, graduates have the opportunity to be leaders in the following industrial ﬁelds: Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Biomedical, Robotics and Automation, to name a few.
Mechatronic Engineering has spawned a lot of research work and has become a popular ﬁeld of study. Some of the active research topics in this area are: Actuators and Sensors, Control of Mechatronic Systems, Machine Intelligence, Embedded Computing and Software Engineering.
