I'm thinking of mechatronics in UNSW and have got a few questions...

1) Are there only two Bs I can do to do Mechatronics? I made that assumption because in the UAC guide, I could only find two that actually mentioned Mechatronics. That is, only B Engineering (Aero/Manuf/Mech/Mechatronics/Naval Arch) and B Engineering (Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronics, Telecommunications/M Bio Medical Engineering.

2) I got a UAI of 84.70. With recent talk of UAI cutoffs rising, would it be possible for me to get into either? For the first I mentioned, 2002's cutoff was 79.00 and 2003's 79.05. For the second, 2002's was 82.00 and 2003's 84.05.

3) Do these two Bs only run through the 5 'focuses' lightly? i.e. not as intensive as say a B Engineering (Mechanical)? Does that even exist in UNSW or anywhere else?

Sorry about the newbishness of these questions. The prospect of getting into uni next year is really exciting and I wanna make the right decision :)

i wanted to do mechatronics at the beginning of the year
at uts (where i wanted to go) the cut off is like 83 for last year

it sounds like an interesting course, and you'll be really specialised in your field :)

- good luck to you :)

i think with the first q yes, you have to do one of those degrees. mech eng is usually the way people go into mechatronics (i think). what focuses are you talking about?

and getting in shouldn't be a problem, i don't think the demand is that high. but don't trust me, i'm a computer scientist who likes reading :(

i'm probably doing mechatronics

how it works is aero/mech/etc. are all common in the first 2 years then third year you choose to focus on one

uts has mechanical and mechatronics combined to the one course... look at the uac handbook
