Welcome to Mechatronics Engineering Department


Dr. Syamsul Bahrin Abdul Hamid
Head of Department

 

The Department of Mechatronics Engineering at IIUM has a very important mission to promote training and education as well as research and development in this vital area of Engineering. It is noted that IIUM is the pioneer in offering the first Mechatronics Engineering praogramme within any Faculty of Engineering in Malaysia which has been fully accredited by the Institute of Engineers, Malaysia and the Board of Engineers, Malaysia which will be followed by the Washington Accord recognition.

The Mechatronics Engineering programme was established in 1994. However, it came into existence as a department in 1998. The Kulliyyah of Engineering is honoured to be the first faculty in Malaysia to have a full-fledged Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) (Honours). Currently, the number of students enrolled into Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) (Honours) Programme has grown to more than 350 and it is one of the most popular programmes among students in the Kulliyyah of Engineering.  The department provides an integrated education encompassing electrical, mechanical, control and computer engineering disciplines which enables its graduates to acquire the needed skills in facing the challenges of contemporary industry.

The Department of Mechatronics Engineering, established almost 12 years ago, has now grown in strength and stature to serve the industrial needs of Malaysia and the World. This clearly shows that IIUM has the foresight to develop and effectively implement “industry relevant programmes” whose graduates possess highly demanded skills in areas such as robotics, automation, instrumentation and intelligent systems design.
