Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering With Honours

Geared To Meet the Surge of Innovation and Emergence of New Technologies

 

The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering with Honours is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. This programme is suitable for students who are passionate and interested in understanding new designs or developing new sensors, actuators, control algorithms and use advanced functional materials for the design of mechanical systems.

This programme is designed to meet the surge of innovation and emergence of new technologies required by modern industries to sustain global competitiveness which makes mechatronic engineers as a hybrid graduate that are able to tackle a wide range of challenges in the industry. Every industry needs mechatronics engineers to continue to rapidly develop innovative products with performance, which delivers quality at a lower cost. This makes the scope and applications of mechatronics relevant and vibrant for many years to come with a steady increase in demand from the industry.

The Mechatronic programme at UOW Malaysia KDU is a perfect balance between mechanical and electronic engineering geared to provide both theory and laboratory work to enable students to understand the principles underlying the application of intelligent controllers and systems. Students will mature through the practical application of concepts and theory that will be carried out in cutting-edge laboratories. UOW Malaysia KDU Mechatronics students have the unique prospect to gain hands-on experience in the integrated design of mechanical, electrical, and software systems. Other than that, students are also exposed to the real world as UOW Malaysia KDUestablished academic linkages with industry players for capstone project design, guest seminars, industrial enhancement skills as well as support for project-based learning and internship.

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN ACADEMIC AND INDUSTRY DESIGN-CENTRIC CURRICULUM
Hands-on learning and real-world experience are crucial in ensuring our students, as future engineers, stay current and remain relevant when they begin their career. Actively engaging industry experts and exposing students to real-life practices, as well as the development of real-life projects are some of the ways we ensure our students set themselves apart and are more grounded from their exposure to the different challenges faced in the industry. Engineering courses at UOW Malaysia KDU emphasize on Design-Centric Curriculum (DCC), with Design Thinking as the grounding principle of teaching and learning. Students are required to engage in design assignments, Capstone projects and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) to develop their skills in design, complex problem-solving, project management, teamwork, lifelong learning and complex communication.
