Mechanical or Mechatronic? Which Degree to Study?

Sharing is caring :)

Are you the kind of person who’s constantly curious about how things work, from smart machines to air crafts that float 30,000ft above the ground? Have you ever wanted to invent devices or equipment that could serve great benefits to society? Yes? Then a degree in Mechanical or Mechatronics engineering is perfect as your starting point. 

This article will help students to distinguish between Mechanical and Mechatronics engineering to decide on which course suits their preference for their future careers. 

What is Mechanical Engineering

Video credit: Zach Star

Mechanical engineering is one of the most diverse engineering disciplines that study the principles of motion, energy and force to design and develop mechanical systems which fulfil the demands of society, such as vehicle engines, refrigerators, air conditioning systems and elevators.

They introduce innovative technologies in food production, develop 3D printers and even wireless chargers. They also create solutions in technological aspects of health care, transportation, energy and space crafts. 

Career Opportunity in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineer

Design, develop, construct, and testing mechanical and thermal sensors and appliances.

Automotive Engineer

Responsible for vehicle design, development, manufacture and testing.

CAD Technician

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Technicians create electronic design plans for buildings and machinery using computer software.

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Engineer (HVAC)

HVAC engineers improve the available technologies in heating, ventilation, air conditioning or refrigeration systems. 

What is Mechatronics Engineering?

Video credit: Richard Engineer

Mechatronics Engineering covers both electrical and mechanical devices and can include the use of computer, Artificial Intelligence (AI), power, electronics and telecommunications systems. 

Examples of devices developed for mechatronics technologies include robotic systems, anti-lock braking systems for vehicles and prosthetic limbs. While these products are mechanical, computers and electrical control systems are required to operate.

Career Opportunities in Mechatronics Engineering

Robotic Engineer

Responsible in design and test machine prototype and conduct research in creating safe and cost-efficient manufacture of the robotic system

Automation Engineer 

Work with other teams in the automation industry to identify problems and implement automated solutions for software processes to be implemented in vehicles.

Instrumentation Engineer

Responsible for planning, implementing and maintaining control systems and machines in the manufacturing industry. 

Control System Engineer

Design, develop and implement solutions that stabilize dynamic systems such as anti-lock braking systems in cars. 

Differences between Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering

In simpler terms, mechanical engineering combines the fundamentals of other engineering disciplines such as chemical, civil and electrical engineering in designing and developing safe, efficient and reliable devices or systems. A mechanical engineer knows better than a mechatronics engineer in the mechanical aspect of machines or devices. 

Mechatronics engineering focuses on computing and electronics in developing innovative technologies or modifying existing ones. Students who enrol in this course will learn about robots, smart systems and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Sharing is caring :)

Finding the right university in Sydney is not that difficult, it very much depends on your study plan and what do you want to achieve in the future. Aside from the financial capabilities, taking consideration of the ranking of a university is a smart move to decide which university to choose from. 

The general rule of thumb is, the higher the ranking of a university, the higher tuition fee you have to pay, along with more research elements in your syllabus to maintain the high standard of education compare to university with a lower ranking.

Why many international students choose to study in Sydney

Sydney is the biggest city in Australia with a population of more than 4.5 millions of people. It is the capital city of New South Wales location in the south-west coast of Australia. Apart from being the financial hub of the country, food culture and corporate lifestyle are highly rated as one of the top in the world. In short, here are the top reason why you should study in Sydney,

Low employment rate 😀

It is much easier to get a job in Sydney compared to other regions in Australia according to the unemployment rate published recently from Labour Market Information Portal.

Unemployment Rate (15+) by State and Territory, Australia 2019 (%)

A degree from Sydney will be valuable anywhere you go. The only problem of studying in Sydney is the sky-high cost of living, on average, the international student needs about AUD2500 - AUD4000 to live through in a month. 

Spending Category Average Monthly Expenses
Rental for 1 bedroom in a shared unit ($350pw)

AUD 1,400

Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) ($300pw)

AUD 1,200

Study Law in the Top Universities Australia 2020

Sharing is caring :)

Coursework

An undergraduate degree in law may vary between countries, which is why it’s important to specialise in a law degree that is most applicable in the country you want to practice in. In that respect, most law degrees offer Common Law, which is the basis of most legal systems in different countries.

Your degree’s course structure may include different delivery methods: including lectures, seminars, practical mock court sessions. Then finally, you may have the opportunity to earn a placement in a law firm, hence kickstarting your career in the legal field.

Some typical modules within a law degree may include:

  • Civil procedure – the process of adjudicating civil lawsuits, i.e. jurisdiction, motions and pleadings, the structure of a lawsuit, etc.
  • Constitutional law – the legislative powers of different entities within a state, i.e. the executive, the parliament or legislature, and the judiciary; as well as the basic rights of citizens.
  • Contracts – a practice of making and enforcing rules and promises for determining consequences in the case of nonperformance.
  • Criminal law and criminal procedure – rules and policies for enforcing regulations against individuals accused of committing crime, and the rights guaranteed to those charged with criminal violations.  
  • Legal method – Introduction to a legal system and its procedures.
  • Legal writing – research and write memoranda dealing with a variety of legal issues.
  • Property law – concepts dealing with the treatment of land, buildings, natural resources, and personal objects
  • Torts – private wrongs, i.e. assault, negligence, defamation, etc.

Specialisations

Even though law degrees will include the common modules as mentioned above, most law degrees will require you to choose a specialisation during the end of your degree. This decision will then pull you towards a specific sector in the legal field for your future career.

Common specialisations include:

  • Criminal Law
  • Civil Rights
  • Corporate Law
  • Tax Law
  • Health Law
  • Environmental Law

Your law degree may require you to write a dissertation, this will give you a chance to develop your research skills and explore the different areas of law thoroughly. 

Accreditation and Certification

The accreditation of your degree depends on where you choose to study, as different countries have their own legal systems. In the case of Australia, you can expect to be awarded a Bachelor of Laws upon completion. Which is why it’s very important to choose a law degree applicable to the country you wish to practice in. 

If you want to become a solicitor or barrister after your degree, you can do so by passing a bar exam.

Why study Law?

It’s a common conception that people who study law will end up as solicitors or barristers, but it can lead to many exciting opportunities, as law degrees are actually applicable to all sorts of industries. Lawyers are highly coveted as they are responsible for representing their clients in civil and criminal trials. You can choose to specialise in bankruptcy, elser, probate law, and more to hone your expertise. You may even intersect your legal knowledge into working for business management, banking and finance, politics and government. 

Other than practising law, lawyers can find jobs in other areas such as:

  • Academician
  • Advocates & Solicitors
  • Attorney-General’s Chambers
  • Arbitrator
  • Company Secretary
  • Corporate Counsel
  • Forensic Investigator
  • Judiciary
  • Lecturer
  • Legal Secretary
  • Legal Writer & Editor

Steps to becoming a Lawyer in Australia

Similar to Malaysia, students need to complete the following four steps to practice as a solicitor in Australia,

  1. Completion of an approved law degree (LLB or JD)
  2. Completion of an approved Practical Legal Training (PLT) course to obtain the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice or completion of a supervised traineeship at a firm
  3. Application for admission to the Roll of Lawyers
  4. Application for a practising certificate

*Please note international students wishing to work in Australia as a lawyer are required to satisfy the ‘2 years study requirement in Australia’ and apply for Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) upon completion of their study.

  • Retail and Sales Management
  • Public Speaking
  • E-commerce Marketing Principles

  • Sales

Finance

A finance major will learn the fundamentals of financial planning, investment decisions and analyzing/limiting expenses.
