What our students say...


"I knew I wanted to do engineering but I didn’t know what type so I came in and spoke to one of the lecturers. He explained that Mechatronics is good if you’re not sure because it’s so broad and opens up more options for you. At the time I really didn’t know what Mechatronics was but it’s a combination of computer engineering and mechanical and automation."
