Mechatronic engineering is covers the design of automated machines such as robotics. Mechatronics Engineering is a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical & electronics engineering and software engineering, but is a distinctly different discipline to all three.

Mechatronic engineering is the engineering discipline concerned with the research, design, implementation and maintenance of intelligent engineered products and processes enabled by the integration of mechanical, electronic, computer, and software engineering technologies”

Students need to have credits in Maths & Physics in SPM or O-Levels to go for the mechatronics engineering programme. Students after SPM or O-Levels with at least 5 credits may go for the 1-year Foundation in Engineering at Top Ranked Asia Pacific University.

Students with at least 3 credits in SPM or O-Levels including Maths and Science can go for the 2-year Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering or Diploma in Mechatronic Engineering and then enter into Year 2 of the Mechatronic Engineering degree at Asia Pacific University (APU).

Students after the external Pre-University Programme such as A-Levels, UEC, STPM, SAM, CPU, MUFY or AUSMAT may enter directly into the Engineering Degree programme with relevant results. Foundation in Engineering or Foundation in Science programmes from premier private universities in Malaysia  are also accepted for entry at APU. The 4-year Mechatronics engineering degree at Asia Pacific University is accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia.

Mechatronics engineering differs from automotive engineering in that they have a deep understanding of the performance analysis and design of complex machines. It differs from mechanical engineering in that its practitioners understand how automations can be designed and integrated into a machine very effectively to achieve an outcome.

A mechatronics engineer is capable of thinking holistically about a mechatronic system, rather than focussing on certain domain specific elements such as the mechanical system or the software. An understanding of how to model a system from a power perspective (rather than thinking in terms of voltages or forces) is fundamental to this.

Many mechatronic engineers work with the electronic instrumentation and computer control systems which nearly all machinery relies on for efficient and reliable operation. Mechatronic engineers build and design these systems and need expertise in computing and electronics, core mechanical engineering knowledge, and the ability to bring these together to make working systems which meet the safety and reliability levels.

Mechatronic engineers also have roles in project engineering, reliability engineering and power

engineering where their cross- disciplinary knowledge gives them an edge on mechanical or electrical engineers.  Mechatronic engineers can work with electrical and mechanical systems together and solve problems that cross discipline boundaries.

Their strength in IT, computer hardware and networking as well as software also helps them to be very versatile problem solvers. Writing and testing software for specialised computer systems and micro-controllers forms a major part of the work of many mechatronic engineers.

At the most fundamental level  lies the ability to design, model and test “simple” mechatronic systems comprising mechanical and electrical components connected to a single microcontroller or PLC. An example is a DC motor connected to a gearbox driving a load mass with sensors to enable feedback control of position and speed.

Mechatronics engineers are trained to have insight into how larger scale systems may be constructed

though application of these fundamental skills. For example they are able to design more complex systems by networking microcontrollers together to achieve distributed control over a larger mechatronic system Structured systematic design techniques are also important, together with conversation skills to jointly develop solutions with clients in terms of mechatronic engineering possibilities. Knowing how to conduct rigorous systematic testing is also critically important.

Other areas of specific expertise relevant to the practice of Mechatronic engineering are found within the disciplines of Aeronautical, Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Communications Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Electrical

Engineering, Electrical Power Engineering, Electronic engineering, Industrial Engineering, Instrumentation and Control Engineering, Manufacturing and Production Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering and Space Engineering.

Like all engineers, technical collaboration takes most of a mechatronic engineer’s working time.
