Mechatronics degrees abroad

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary subject that combines a number of areas including electrical, software and mechanical engineering. Often referred to as mechatronic engineering, it’s instrumental in the development of systems that control physical motion like those found in robotic applications and industrial automation.

Examples of mechatronics can be found all around us, from everyday objects like washing machines and autofocus cameras, to cutting edge robotic technology such as interplanetary explorers and airplanes.

Choosing to study mechatronics abroad means you’ll be able to access the best programs and facilities from universities from all over the world. If you have a passion for creative problem solving and have an aptitude for engineering, then mechatronics could be the perfect degree for you.

Mechatronics program structure

You can study mechatronics at a range of levels, including undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate. As an undergraduate mechatronics is available as a BSc or BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) depending on the country and university you study at. There is usually not much difference between the two, but a BEng tends to involve more practical elements.

You can sometimes convert a BEng to an MEng after the first or second year - this means you’ll study for an extra year and earn a master’s level degree. Undergraduate engineering programs can last between three and five years, and as a postgraduate you can study a mechatronics MSc over one or two years.

Most mechatronics programs are taught through lectures, small group seminars and practical laboratory work. A lot of your time will be spent in laboratory sessions where you’ll be able to develop your practical skills and reinforce what you’ve learned in lectures. You’ll be assessed through a mixture of written essays, project reports and exams, with a research project in your final year.

The program structure and curriculum of each mechatronics degree course will differ depending on things like the university you study at and the level of degree you study. However, there are some modules and subjects most programs will cover, including:

  • Engineering mathematics
  • Engineering design
  • Applied robotics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Control systems
  • Electromechanical engineering
  • Automation engineering
