You'll then gain sought-after skills in fields that are presently transforming the business landscape, including automation and robotics, advanced material, simulation and modelling of manufacturing processes.

The course is delivered by leading academics in our high-tech facilities where you'll develop advanced technical skills in computer-aided design, systems integration, robotics, and digital manufacturing.In your final year, you can build your industry experience by completing a work placement in either Melbourne or Bendigo.
