About the course Ask us a question about this course
This qualification has a focus on 'hands on' learning and the practical skills sought by industry. You will use powerline communications (PLC) equipment for automation tasks (materials handling, robotics, production) for both pneumatic and electrical equipment.
Gaining skills in computer aided drafting (CAD), you will be able to interpret and create drawings and use these drawings in the manufacture of equipment using workshop machinery (lathes, welding, tapping etc.).
The first semester of the course is common to the Mechanical Engineering stream, the second semester specialises in mechatronics.
