Robotics and Mechatronics

Automation begins with a foundation in engineering.

We understand the growing demand for robotics and mechatronics, an industry continuously pushing the limits of technology. That’s why we offer robotics and mechatronics courses at Swinburne.

Our robotics and mechatronics courses are an opportunity to explore the integration of three traditional engineering areas – mechanical, electronics and software. With a specialisation in robotics and mechatronics, you'll examine how this intersection has ignited many technological advances and contributions. These include automated assembly plants and driverless vehicles. You’ll also have the chance to gain practical skills needed to design and develop systems for diverse industries, including manufacturing, medicine and service: It’s just a matter of choosing the course that suits the future you can picture.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. Future careers can be found in engineering industries and more.

Student experience


Robotics and mechatronics, and computer science student Matt shares his Swinburne experiences of building LEGO robots, learning to ski and changing lives in India.

“I tried so many things in my first year and I haven’t regretted anything. There’s so many events on all the time at Swinburne, and it’s just so easy to meet new people,” Matt says.

The Swinburne Advantage

We turn knowing into know-how.

We believe an undergraduate education must be about more than knowledge. In today’s competitive job market, it must be about true job readiness.

Work Integrated Learning is a key part of the Swinburne Advantage. It’s just a matter of choosing the opportunity that suits your future.

Choose from professional degrees, professional placements, professional internships, industry-linked projects, industry study tours and accreditation placements. There are also a range of other opportunities you can create.

You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence in knowing you have what it takes to land a job in your field by graduation.

We think it’s an approach that makes the adventure worth taking.

I had a lot of options. I chose Swinburne because of the practical nature of this course and the work placement program. The placement I completed at Peters Ice Cream provided a really practical understanding of the things I had learned at uni and how they tie in with the real world.
