Build smart and sustainable solutions

The interdisciplinary nature of mechatronics, which encompasses mechanical, electronics, computer, control and systems design engineering; is envisaged to become more important in the future, both domestically as well as globally. Mechatronics has been recognized as a continuous evolving reality in the creation of intelligent machines and advanced manufacturing and processing systems.

At UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College, Batu Kawan, the Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering with Honours program is designed to expose students to the principles and practice of mechatronics by gaining knowledge of engineering processes, mechanical principles, as well as the use of digital electronics, 3D printing technology and computer-aided (CAD) software.

It has a strong focus on design-and hands-on project based learning activities that use equipment associated with robotics, industrial control and advanced manufacturing. Thus, provides a holistic preparation for students to embark into future challenges in existing and emerging sectors.
