Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00109J

The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours)/ Bachelor of Mathematics combined degree program provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in Mechatronics Engineering and Mathematics and complete two awards. In general, a combined degree program offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills. From the control of robots to the optimisation of modern vehicles, to the design of appliances to biomechanics, mechatronics engineers become involved in a diverse range of exciting modern technologies. This may also include the design, automation and operational performance of electro-mechanical systems combined with mathematics. Students gain valuable expertise analysing data, producing models and predicting future trends in a variety of areas.


  • The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Mathematics is a five year program, students are required to complete 400 units, which is comprised of: 330 units of Core Courses
  • 60 units of Mathematics Directed Courses: 20 units taken at the 2000 level
  • 40 units taken at the 3000 level
  • and 10 units of Elective Courses.


  • Engineering-mechatronic
  • Mathematics and statistics
  • computer-integrated manufacturing
  • electronic design
  • mechatronics design
  • microprocessor systems
  • modelling and simulation
  • sensors and actuators

Standard entry requirements

Year 12 or equivalent. Alternative entry pathways may include approved TAFE studies, preparatory programs such as Newstep, Open Foundation or Tertiary Preparation Certificate. Assumed knowledge: HSC Mathematics (Band 5 or above) or equivalent. One science-related subject would also be an advantage (physics preferred). Applicants who have achieved less than Mathematics Band 5 may be admitted to the program but may need to complete additional study to successfully complete the requirements of the program. Students who have completed HSC Mathematics General 2 may be admitted to the program but can expect to undertake additional studies to successfully complete the requirements of the program.


This degree program is accredited by Engineers Australia and other affiliated international organisations.

Study pathways

Credit transfer agreements with TAFE NSW and other education providers are under continuous negotiation. A Bachelor of Mathematics (Honours) is available as an additional year to meritorious students.
