Mechatronics means "a mechanical system with electronic controls". Mechatronics is an emerging field of engineering that integrates electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, control engineering and information technology. In layman's terms, mechatronics combines these areas of engineering to allow the design, development and application of "smart devices" in an integrated, crossdisciplinary manner.
The mechatronics concept established basic principles for a contemporary engineering design methodology. In this methodology, engineering products and processes have components that require manipulation and control of dynamic (moving) construction to the required high degree of accuracy. Also, the design process requires integrating enabling technologies such as information technology and control engineering. A key factor for the design process involves integrating modern microelectronics and the engineering of software into mechanical and electromechanical systems.
This programme is combination of electrical engineering and automotive engineering. During the study, students will be given a solid understanding of the core areas which include:
Minimum Diploma pass with CGPA of 2.0 in a related field from an accredited institution of higher learning OR
STPM or equivalent with minimum 3 OR 2 Principal Principal and 2 subsid and credit in Mathematics at SPM *
* If there is no principal in Mathematics at STPM level OR
Passing the Basic Course in Engineering Technology with a minimum CGPA of 2.0 OR
Passed Matriculation in Science / Preparation Program recognized with a minimum CGPA of 2.0 OR
Passed the International Baccalaureate (IB) with a minimum of 24 points
