Mechatronics engineering is a multidisciplinary program, where knowledge of mechanical and electrical/electronic engineering are combined towards the development of intelligent machines and advanced manufacturing and processing systems.
Whilst developing the strong analytical and problem-solving capabilities typical of any engineering program, this particular program is specifically tailored to Australia's resource-based and service industries.
The course starts with a typical engineering science foundation in mathematics, mechanics, electrical engineering and computing, and then proceeds to cover major engineering topics, including:
digital electronics and microprocessor systems, advanced materials and manufacturing, and mechanical design.
Mechatronics engineering gives a broader engineering coverage compared with standard mechanical or electrical engineering programs with the themes of automation, instrumentation, digital electronics, manufacturing, mechanical design, fluid mechanics and control systems.
The program focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development.
As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will gain strong analytical skills, and have the ability to lead complex projects.
Areas of study within the course include engineering mechanics, computer-aided design and manufacturing, analogue and digital electronics, signal analysis, electromechanical systems, industrial control, and robotics.
The first year of this course includes a set of eight units that are common across all engineering honours courses.
This allows students the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the various engineering disciplines on offer and the flexibility, if desired, to switch to another engineering discipline/course without penalty after the first year of study.
Work Experience requirement
Students are required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period.

The Academic English Program (AEP) is designed for students who plan to study at an Australian university or who are interested in developing academic reading, writing, listening and communication skills.
It is taught in 10 week terms, with start dates approximately every five weeks.
It is designed to improve your English and study skills, enabling you to be successful in your diploma and PQP courses at ECC as well as under or postgraduate programs at ECU.
No further English testing is required (except for Nursing and other higher English course requirements). Therefore, with a minimum of 65%, you are able to graduate to the next AEP level or your designated course.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate their English language proficiency before they enter an ECC program.
English language proficiency can be determined by submitting evidence of Year 12 studies or IELTS Test scores, or Pearson English Test scores or equivalent as shown in the table below.

|IELTS 5.5||AE 4 - 10 weeks|
All applicants are required to have
It is desirable that all applicants have Physics ATAR or Engineering Studies ATAR, with equivalents considered.
Students without Physics ATAR or Engineering Studies ATAR may need to take a bridging unit in the first year of their studies.
National College Entrance Exam (Gao Kao) OR
Successful completion of one year of tertiary study A minimum of 65.6% of the overall score
Higher Secondary Certificate or equivalent 65%
