Study Mechatronic Engineering at UniSA

At UniSA, we offer the following Engineering specialisations:  Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical EngineeringMechatronic Engineering and Project Management

Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary area of engineering that combines mechanical engineering with electrical engineering and computer science. A typical mechatronic system senses signals from the environment, processes them to generate data, then transforms that data into forces, motions and actions. Mechatronics has broad applications, including the design and operation of intelligent products and systems such as autonomous vehicle systems for mining and other applications, and in the development of sophisticated robotic and automatic production systems.


*The only university in SA to have all of its assessed Engineering Research rated well above world-standard. 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).
