Mechatronic Engineering

Is This For You?

Are you curious, imaginative, active and inventive, do you like team projects and problem solving? Then the mix of electronic, electrical, computer, robotics and mechanical in Mechatronic Engineering will offer you plenty of opportunities to thrive. Graduates will be in a position to pursue careers in any number of fields from Pharmaceuticals, Manufacturing and Heavy Industry to Aerospace Technology.


At ITB you can study Computer Engineering, with a later specialisation in Mobile Systems and Mechatronic Engineering. These courses are offered at Higher Certificate, Ordinary Degree and Honours Degree levels.


Graduates of these courses can work on Mobile Systems, in Software Engineering, Electronics Design, the Manufacturing sector, Automation and Test Engineering amongst others. Students will be equipped to apply for a wide range of high technology jobs upon completion of the course.


If you enjoy taking devices and components apart and putting them back together, figuring out how they work and how they can work better and you want to get a qualification to be able to build and invent then this is the right path for you.


All of these courses are designed to give you a sound theoretical knowledge across a mix of disciplines together with strong practical skills. This means you can move directly into work or go on to further study. You will learn how to work effectively, both on your own and as part of a team and will work on specially designed projects that bring together the various subjects in your course.

All of this is done with modern, well-equipped labs, easy online access to course materials, lectures and assessment as well as on-site support from enthusiastic staff willing to spending time working with our students.

“I found the course very interesting, it helped me to understand the principles and standards of a professional engineer in the industry. As a student representative I made good friends and got a great appreciation for the hard work of staff members. They showed great enthusiasm for their subject which encouraged us as students.

I was also involved with student union clubs and societies which added to my enjoyment as a student at ITB. Upon graduation I was employed in the industry as a network engineer while I continued to tutor mathematics to engineering students. I decided to continue my professional development by studying for my research masters in ITB which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would encourage any student to pursue a degree at ITB”.
