About the Course

Fascinated by aircraft such as stealth fighters and super-heavy cargo planes? Or maybe robots, like Star Wars’ R2D2 and BB-8? Then our Aerospace / Mechatronics Programme is for you. This one-year programme will give you strong grounding in the interdisciplinary fields of aerospace engineering and mechatronics engineering. You’ll learn how to apply mechanical, electrical and electronics engineering theories, as well as the techniques used in creating smart devices and robots. What’s more, you will also understand aerospace manufacturing technology to give you an advantage in the aerospace industry.

In your second year, you can choose to pursue either a Diploma in Aeronautical & Aerospace Technology or a Diploma in Robotics & Mechatronics, which includes Aerospace Technology as an elective programme in the third year. Both options will open doors for you in a variety of fields, including aerospace, robotics, automation and biomedical engineering.
