The Engineering Technology (Mechatronics and Industrial Automation) program from Federation University Australia provides a balance in knowledge and skills between the three key areas of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering, with a strong focus on project-based and multidisciplinary learning.  


Project-based subjects will provide you with opportunities to exercise your multidisciplinary knowledge to learn and understand mechatronics as a discipline. You will also undertake independent research in your final year.

As a graduate of the Engineering Technology (Mechatronics and Industrial Automation) program from Federation University Australia, you may seek managerial roles with private consultants, contracting companies, or federal, state and local government organisations. Significant opportunities for employment exist in Australia, as well as in South-East Asia and throughout the rest of the world.
