Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering

Mechatronics is a multi-disciplinary study dealing with the integration of mechanical devices, electronics, intelligent controllers and computers. Many new generations of consumer or commercial products can be classified as mechatronic products as they involve mechanical as well as electronic components. The need for mechatronic education has grown due to the increase in the number and importance of such systems and devices. This programme is designed to provide in-depth knowledge in the fundamentals, design, analysis and operation of mechatronic systems and will be conducted by faculty from both the Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering departments at UTB.

The main focus is to provide students with necessary skills to solve engineering related problems and to develop in students professional and ethical attitude, effective communication skills, teamwork skills, multidisciplinary approach and ability to relate engineering issues to broader social context.

Aims and Objectives

The objectives of the programme:

  • Graduates will have the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering in all aspects of Mechatronics Engineering.
  • Graduates will be able to communicate effectively in both verbal and written form.
  • Graduates will acquire the skills to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.
  • Graduates will be able to apply theoretical knowledge and to conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data for conclusions.
  • Graduates will have the ability to suggest modifications and/or design/ develop systems and processes which meet the needs of Brunei Darussalam.
  • Graduates will acquire the skills to model real life problems using software and hardware platforms and to work and contribute to multidisciplinary tasks.
  • Graduates will have the ability to succeed in higher learning and research.
  • Graduates will be able to apply entrepreneurial, managerial and leadership skills to work effectively as an individual or as a team member.

Career opportunities

Mechatronics engineers design, build and operate intelligent products and systems of today and for tomorrow. These engineers will be increasingly in demand as more industries seek to apply evolutionary advances in computers, electronics, sensors and actuators to improve products processes and services.

Mechatronics graduates can find jobs in a variety of fields: oil & gas, industrial automation, intelligent systems, manufacturing, robotics and more.
