What will I learn?

The BE (Hons) programme has been accredited by Engineering NZ as a professional engineering degree under the Washington Accord. This is an international agreement between bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes. Our practical learning environment, combined with having more work experience than other New Zealand engineering qualification will see you develop the skills that employers are looking for.

What is it Like?

Mechatronics is a multi-disciplinary field of engineering that uses mechanical, electrical, software and control engineering to develop innovative, intelligent systems.

A Massey University Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Mechatronics) equips you with the knowledge and skills you will need in order to practically develop your own mechatronic systems. These skills will help you develop effective solutions to the problems you will face in industry.

The degree strikes a balance between a broad engineering education and practical abilities. Through intensive courses and challenging projects, you will graduate as a confident, competent, and competitive engineer.

Develop exciting projects while you study

Over one quarter of the Bachelor of Engineering is project-based. These projects will give you the skills to design, build, and integrate mechanical, electrical, and software systems from the ground up. Supporting the practical projects are the academic courses. In these courses, you will learn about mechanics. This could include things like building and breaking a scale bridge, analysing the mechanical properties of materials, programming or designing and building electrical circuits.
You will also learn how to use tools used in industry such as industry-standard Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools such as SolidWorks and Altium.
