Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Mechatronics

Mechatronics is a fusion of mechanical, electrical, electronic and control engineering. This multidisciplinary field is increasingly integral to the engineering process as innovation demands the integration of mechanics and electronics. For example, a car may now contain a hundred processor chips and rely on sensors, software and actuators to control everything from braking to entertainment. A mechatronics engineer unites the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to generate simpler, more economical and reliable systems.

This degree programme will allow students to integrate Electrical/Electronic and Mechanical Engineering in the study of cutting-edge and high-tech industrial components and systems. This interdisciplinary approach allows students to successfully combine traditionally divided disciplines, equipping them for varied career opportunities.

Mechatronics Engineers excel in their work on hybrid systems in varied fields of research such as production systems, synergy drives, planetary exploration rovers, automotive subsystems such as anti-lock braking systems and spin-assist, and everyday equipment such as autofocus cameras, video, hard disks, and CD players.

Students studying in the University of Glasgow (UofG) degree programmes are required to complete a four-week attachment in Glasgow at the home campus of the University of Glasgow, U.K., where they will undertake a 10-credit group design/practical module, experience a different culture and interact with students there. Some industrial visits and guest lectures may be organised by the University of Glasgow. The estimated cost ranges from S$4,500* to S$5,500*.

Note: Estimated costs are dependent on the prevailing currency exchange rate and flight ticket prices.

“OIP is an eye-opener for me as I have not been exposed to other culture and ways of life. It is a good experience to be able to work with current students in Glasgow and sharing knowledge” -- Randall Tan, Mechatronics

“It was an unforgettable and eye-opening experience to see the lovely culture of Glasgow; the friendly people and slower pace of life. I was also in awe of the serenity and breath taking beauty of Scotland. It will be forever etched in my mind.” -- Ziyi Poh, Mechanical Design Engineering

“Sharing the summer of 2012 in Glasgow was definitely the highlight of the year. Being in a land where the sun rises at 4am and sets at 10pm, I was amazed by what Glasgow had to offer. The University, too, was a sight to behold, with its exterior representing a castle as though carved out from the movies. I am very proud to be a student of the University, and words just cannot describe how fortunate I was to have had this experience.’ – Khairul Anwar Bin Ahmad Samson, Mechatronics
