Master of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering)




What will I learn?

Gain advanced knowledge and skills in robotics and mechatronics and control systems. This course prepares you to lead the introduction of new technologies and operating practices in advanced manufacturing and a range of other technical industries including robotics and mechanical systems design, mechatronics and micro- and nano-technology.

You'll study high-demand areas including:

advanced mechatronics system design
advanced control systems (including process control)
imaging systems
advanced robotic systems

There is a market demand for engineers with advanced skills such as control and robotics design and the ability to develop and implement new processes in agile manufacturing, ensuring innovations can emanate from all levels of the workforce.

With a focus on project-based and multi-disciplinary learning, you'll develop your professional engineering competencies in project management, teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, communication and research.


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.
