Is it for me?
Do you want to create robots that make life easier for people? This is the kind of project systems engineers work on. But to build that robot, you’ll need skills in a wide range of interrelated areas: how will your robot navigate rooms or use the images it “sees” and what processing power might be needed?
These challenges require engineers who think at a systems level – deploying skills in hardware, mathematics algorithms and software designed to control hardware components. This is one of the most exciting fields of engineering science, with limitless potential innovation – and highly exciting careers.
What will I learn?
In this option, you will supplement an electronic engineering education with fundamentals in mechanical design, electromechanical control and computing. You will be trained to become a highly versatile engineer capable of integrating electronics, mechanical design and computer hardware and software.
