Faculty of Science and Engineering
Curtin's Faculty of Science and Engineering is a place where students and staff alike can apply their studies and research to real-world industry challenges.
Mechatronic Engineering is a “fusion” of mechanical devices and electronic control systems. With the ever-increasing reach of robotics and autonomous systems, Mechatronic Engineering becomes the pivotal foundation of innovation in various industries such as aerospace, agriculture, biotechnology mining and energy resources. Curtin Mechatronics Engineering discipline has become a dynamic 'ecosystem' - constantly evolving and adapting in response to changes to industry requirements and technological advancements.
The Formula SAE-A is a competition where university students design, build and compete in their very own Formula-style open-wheeled racing car. The Curtin Motor Sports Team (CMT) develops racing cars which compete in this competition annually. CMT is ran by a team of Engineering students, mainly from the Mechatronics, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering disciplines. In the past, the engines developed were petrol fuelled engines. We have since moved on to develop electric powered racing cars. The Engineering Technical Support team works hand in hand with the CMT in the development and manufacturing of these racing cars that compete in the Formula SAE races.
