The study of Mechatronic Engineering in Malaysia is a mixture of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, but is a specific discipline in its own right.
Have you seen the movie ‘Real Steel’, the one with the fighting robots and ever wondered if you could possibly create something like that one day? Do you believe that the future is going to consist of smart intelligent robots capable of making decisions? If so, do you then, want to be part of the reason that becomes a reality? Do you also know that the term ‘mechatronic’ did not originate from a certain Decepticon Transformer made famous by the movies? Then MecMore details Less

In order to achieve the status of a fully developed nation by 2020, Malaysia needs at least 200,000 engineers, being short of another 130,000 engineers.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Mechatronic Engineering:
Mechatronic Engineers are versatile. They can choose to be involved in any career such as robotics, biomedical, computer science, automation and mechanical.
It is a rather new branch of study and graduates of Mechatronic Engineering have more job opportunities as less people are aware of this field of study.
In this field, engineers design the equipments and maintain it. They use their creative skills to design different and unique equipments.
“The robots are coming, whether we like it or not, and will change our economy in dramatic ways.”
Pass with Grade B- in Additional Mathematics or Advanced Additional Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics/Biology
Minimum 2 Principal Passes, including Mathematics and Physics
Minimum 5 Bs (including Mathematics and Physics/Chemistry
Matriculation Certificate/Foundation of Science :
SAM/HSC/AUSMAT- TER/UAI :
Average of 50% or higher in 5 subjects (including Mathematics)
Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field of study with a first class honours
Completed Master of Science (Engineering)
Important Note: If you opt to study a Diploma in Mechatronic Engineering and continue your degree at the same institution, you will most likely get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma..
While you may not understand a certain recipe, you’re amazing at replicating the same dish. Perhaps you’re not amazing at reading musical notes, but you’re a brilliant pianist. Theoretically, you aren’t the best. With your hands, though, and even the best are envious.
You love art, music or any form of artistic expression. While most people associate music with how loud the bass is these days, you prefer to dive into the meaning of the lyrics, no matter how simple they are, because creative people know that a truest form of expression is expressed in the most subtle way.
You save petrol by driving without accelerating too much on the road. You walk to places not too far away instead of taking an Uber. You use the fan when you sleep, even though you have an air-conditioning unit, to save electricity. Whatever it is, you’re smart with it comes to spending, you save without affecting the way of life.
You aren’t surprised by a new processor in an iPhone. You aren’t shocked by Virtual AI, or voice activated control systems. You aren’t surprised because either you anticipated it, or had a hand in making it a reality. These engineers know what the future holds, and what needs to be done to achieve it.
