Course delivery details

You are expected to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending weekly webinars that run for about 90 minutes to facilitate class discussion and allow you to ask questions. This program is run online on a part-time basis and has been designed to fit around full-time work. It will take 18 months to complete.

This program aims to impart the necessary remote engineering, mechatronics, and robotics skills, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Four threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field. These threads comprise electrical/electronic systems, mechanical systems, computers, and control systems.

Graduates will have the knowledge and skills to contribute to the capacity of robotics and mechatronics engineering and related industries to maintain their competitiveness in a global marketplace through the application of the latest technologies, value adding to existing products, processes, and services, and the development of new, sustainable and innovative solutions.
