Content

Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary area of engineering that combines mechanical and electrical engineering with computer science. A typical mechatronic system picks up signals from the environment, processes them to generate output signals, transforming them for example into forces, motions and actions.

You'll study:
Communication: Practical Skills; Engineering Mathematics 1; Mechatronic Systems Elements; Mechatronic Systems; Interfacing Electronics; Electrical Engineering Principles 1; Engineering Principles; Computer Aided Draughting for Engineers; Robotics and Animatronics: An Introduction; Applications of Programmable Logic Controllers.; MCU/MPU Assembly Language Programming; Engineering Mathematics 2; Pneumatics and Hydraulics; Applied Industrial Plant Maintenance;
Mechatronics: Graded Unit 1 Examination.
