Industry placement with a suitable organisation for a minimum period of 12 weeks, after completing Year 3 and before the commencement of Year 4.

Year 4

The final year Engineering modules provide the necessary industry application technological skills which will become very useful for employment upon graduation. These modules include, Product Creation Technology, Mechatronic Design, and Fluid Mechanics. Your personal and professional development is enhanced by the module in Engineer in Society and Engineering Project Management. You will enhance your technical capability and understand how to innovate, generate and manage the creation of new ideas.

The Project Phase I (Investigation) in Mechatronic Engineering will enable students to take on R&D with commercialisation. The Mechatronic Engineering Project Phase II (Implementation) also develops the academic and practical aspects of your chosen areas of study and reinforces your independent learning skills. This is where you will demonstrate higher level critical thinking, analysis and solutions development skills which will enhance your employability.
