Geared To Meet the Surge of Innovation and Emergence of New Technologies

The Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering with Honours at Glenmarie, Selangor campus is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. This program is suitable for students who are passionate and interested in understanding new designs or developing new sensors, actuators, control algorithms and use advanced functional materials for the design of mechanical systems.

This program is designed to meet the surge of innovation and emergence of new technologies required by modern industries to sustain global competitiveness which makes mechatronic engineers as a hybrid graduate that are able to tackle a wide range of challenges in the industry. Every industry needs mechatronics engineers to continue to rapidly develop innovative products with performance, which delivers quality at a lower cost. This makes the scope and applications of mechatronics relevant and vibrant for many years to come with a steady increase in demand from the industry.

The Mechatronic program at UOW Malaysia is a perfect balance between mechanical and electronic engineering geared to provide both theory and laboratory work to enable students to understand the principles underlying the application of intelligent controllers and systems. Students will mature through the practical application of concepts and theory that will be carried out in cutting-edge laboratories. UOW Malaysia Mechatronics students have the unique prospect to gain hands-on experience in the integrated design of mechanical, electrical, and software systems. Other than that, students are also exposed to the real world as UOW Malaysia established academic linkages with industry players for capstone project design, guest seminars, industrial enhancement skills as well as support for project-based learning and internship.

Program information


Hands-on learning and real-world experience are crucial in ensuring our students, as future engineers, stay current and remain relevant when they begin their career. Actively engaging industry experts and exposing students to real-life practices, as well as the development of real-life projects are some of the ways we ensure our students set themselves apart and are more grounded from their exposure to the different challenges faced in the industry. Engineering courses at UOW Malaysia emphasize on Design-Centric Curriculum (DCC), with Design Thinking as the grounding principle of teaching and learning. Students are required to engage in design assignments, Capstone projects and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) to develop their skills in design, complex problem-solving, project management, teamwork, lifelong learning and complex communication.



Industry Advisory Panel:

  • Our Industry Advisory Panel is made up of various industry professionals and engineers, who provide valuable industry insights to enhance our curriculum and students’ learning. Panel members include those from ABB Malaysia, ProvenPac and YTL Construction, just to name a few.

Industrial Project:

  • Our students are required to complete Final Year engineering projects, which are collaborations with the industry, based on real-world challenges posed by selected organisations. These projects challenge and test students’ skill and creativity in solving complex, real-world problems.

Industrial Visits:

  • Students are provided with exposure to real-world work environment and processes through industrial visits to various plants, sites and organisations, such as MRT construction sites, Energy Commission of Malaysia, MEASAT Satellite Systems and Fraser and Neave, just to name a few.

Young Professional Experience:

  • Through the Young Professional Experience sharing sessions, our engineering students are able to gain insights on various engineering industries and learn more about the experiences of young engineers, some of whom include Mr Loo Ping Yew (R. Stahl Engineering & Manufacturing), and Chin Ze Wei (Schneider Electric).

Industrial Training Partners:

  • Industrial training not only enables our students to brush up on their engineering knowledge and skills but also strengthens their communication skills and emotional quotient. Some collaborative linkage that provide placements for UOW Malaysia’s engineering students to undergo attachment to gain related experience as well as exposure to the engineering practice in an actual workplace settings.



Industrial Project And Consultancy Partners:

  • Collaborative linkage that crafts a platform on joint technical initiatives and projects that integrates element of research that provide specific solution development and expertise to help solve partners challenges.
