Whether you join UCTI immediately after your secondary education or transfer to us from another institution of higher learning, we offer programmes at several levels and entry points, depending on your prior qualifications and experience.
There will be a clear progression of your learning to ensure that you will be empowered with the necessary skills and knowledge to enter the corporate world.

At UCTI, our full-time and part-time programmes are designed to provide flexibility and choice. The Engineering Degree Programmes all have the same modules in the first year so that you can decide which of our Engineering degrees you would like to choose in the second year and continue in the third year and final year to graduation. On graduation with an accredited degree you will be able to register as a Graduate Member and thereby leading the way to be a Professional Engineer with the Board of Engineers Malaysia after sufficient working experience and on fulfilling their requirements. This will allow you to use the title ‘Ir.’ (Ingeneiur).
If you enter our foundation course first you will take a range of modules to help you when you enter the degree and also to decide which of our degrees you want to select. At all times, our staff will be able to advise you on the choices available at each stage of your studies.

Mechatronic Engineering is concerned with the creation, design and building of intelligent machines. This new breed of engineer has to master skills in mechanical, electronic and computer engineering and work in a hybrid manner, meeting an ever-increasing need in industry where complexity of projects is rising and resources are limited. The main areas of activity are:

    Project management – multidisciplinary approach to getting projects completed
    Fundamental design and build – ways of embedding intelligence and interfacing to the real world
    Fit and forget - construction of machines to run autonomously
    Process control – plant condition monitoring and control
    Consultation – advice in optimal methods of building systems and connecting subsystems together
    Entrepreneurial attitude – invention, manufacture and marketing of new intelligent machines.

Upon graduation students will receive degrees from Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation (UCTI) - Malaysia in association with Staffordshire University - United Kingdom.

    What is Mechatronics?

    Mechatronics definition Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems. It is the science, that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines: mechanics, electronics, informatics, automation, robotics. It is one of the most dynamically developing fields of technology and science. The word 'mechatronics' appeared for the first time in Japan in 1969. mechatronics = mecha nics + elec tronics + computing

    Ascento - The Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot

    All-terrain capabilities are required to extend beyond flat surfaces the application range of wheeled robots. First think is four or six-legged robots which have been well known for years. Nowadays, thanks to more and more perfect gait algorithms, the two-legged (bipedal) robots appears more and more often. ETH Zürich students combine the advantages of wheeled robot and two-legged robot.

    DIY Low Cost 6-Axis Desktop Robot

    Learning how to build a robot is a long way. It is the way by mechanics, electronics and programming. Such a mechatronics project is associated with problems such as stiffness (mechanics), overvoltage (electronics) or bug (software). Of course, if something is wrong, we always say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature', but finally a robot has to start working properly.

    How 6-Axis Industrial Robots Work

    6-axis industrial robots are commonly used in the manufacturing industry due to their flexibility, powerful programming software, payload capacities ranging from 5kg up to 1000kg and accuracy to 0.1mm or better. Here is a basic breakdown of how a standard 6-axis robot works. The way it rotates, how it is programmed, and the different types of tooling and grippers.

    Mechatronic Systems Applications [e-book pdf]

    Mechatronics is the synergistic blend of mechanics, electronics, and computer science. This book is concerned with applications of mechatronic systems in various fields, like robotics, medical and assistive technology, human-machine interaction, unmanned vehicles, manufacturing, and education.

    How Automated Parking System Works

    An automated car parking system is a mechatronic system designed to transport and park cars automatically. The first semi-automated parking system was used in Paris, France in 1905 at the Garage Rue de Ponthieu (the car was transported to selected level using an internal elevator and the vehicle was parked by attendants). An automated storage and retrieval system for cars is a solution to cities' parking problems, such as the space wasting in a multi-story parking.

    Smart Home Makes Your Life Easier

    Smart homes are also called intelligent, automated or autonomous houses. Nowadays, you can also automate the flats. Dynamic development of automation technology gives you opportunities that were only seen in sci-fi movies in the past. Soon, probably only your imagination will be the limit. What gives us the smart home system?

    Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

    Do you sort M&Ms or Skittles by colour before eating them?  For example, eat all the yellow ones first, then the red ones, then the blue and so on. Brian Egenriether, an electrical engineer, decided to make a small machine that looked like an appliance, which could perform these tasks automatically. This mechatronics project took him about 5 weekends to make. The use of the machine is very simple: pour Skittles or M&Ms into it, push a button and have candies sorted. Let us look at the construction.
