Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) In Mechatronics Engineering

Mechatronics is a multi-disciplinary area which involves the integration of mechanical and electronic principles to develop mechanical devices, electronics, intelligent controllers and computers. Many new consumer or commercial products can be classified as mechatronic products as they involve mechanical as well as electronic components, and their proliferation and increasing importance have increased the demand for mechatronics education. The BEng (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering programme is thus designed to provide in-depth knowledge in the fundamentals, design, analysis and operation of mechatronic systems. The programme will be conducted by faculty from both the Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering programme areas at UTB. 

The main focus is to provide students with necessary skills to solve engineering related problems and to develop in students professional and ethical attitude, effective communication skills, teamwork skills, multidisciplinary approach and ability to relate engineering issues to broader social context.

Future Careers

Mechatronics engineers design, build and operate intelligent products and systems of today and for tomorrow. These engineers will be increasingly in demand as more industries seek to apply evolutionary advances in computers, electronics, sensors and actuators to improve products processes and services. Mechatronics graduates can find jobs in a variety of fields including in the oil & gas industry, industrial automation, intelligent systems, manufacturing, robotics and more. 

Entry Requirements

Applicants for admission to the BEng (Hons) programmes must satisfy the following minimum general entry requirements:

  • At least a Credit Six in Bahasa Melayu at GCE ‘O’ Level (applicable only for Bruneian students applying for Government Scholarship)
