The Master of Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering at RMIT University will prepare you to lead the introduction of new technologies and operating practices in advanced manufacturing and a range of other technical industries including mechanical systems design, mechatronics, and micro- and nano-technology.

You will study high-demand areas including:

  • advanced mechatronics system design  
  • advanced process control
  • visual data processing and applications 
  • advanced robotic systems


Our previous graduates have gone onto work for companies such as CAN Automation Pty Ltd, HYDAC: Mobile & Industrial Hydraulics Australia and Jetstar Airways. 

RMIT graduates will be sought both in Australia and overseas. While there has been some decline in traditional manufacturing in Australia, there is steady employment in engineering in the construction, infrastructure, mining and building services sectors. The food industry sector and automated production are seen as growth areas of employment for robotics and mechatronics engineers.

The demand for engineers with expertise in advanced manufacturing and mechatronics technologies is at the cusp of exponential growth. You'll be able to work in mechanical systems design, advanced manufacturing, mechatronics, and micro and nano-technology.
