Diploma of Engineering - Technical [Mechatronics]

National ID: MEM50212 | State ID: WB83

 

In this course you will learn how to use programmable logic controller (PLC) equipment for automation tasks (materials handling, robotics, production) for both pneumatic and electrical equipment.

Mechatronics is based on elements of mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, and computer science, but is a distinct discipline in its own right. A mechatronics engineer is someone who can understand and merge various pieces of technology and integrate them to produce a working system.

Covering both materials and use of material testing equipment, you'll also gain techniques for writing technical documents.

The Diploma of Engineering - Technical (Mechatronics) shares the same first semester with the Diploma of Mechanical Engineering. You can always switch streams between the two by choosing the correct electives.

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
