International Degree Pathways



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.

Programme Details

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.
