Doctoral of Engineering Program in Mechatronics Engineering (D.Eng.)

Faculty of Technical Education


    Students in the Mechatronics Engineering program, offered through the Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Department, create intelligent devices by combining mechanical, electrical, computer, and other engineering principles. Graduates from the School of Engineering are shaping the future by designing robots for the manufacturing industry, biomedical devices, rehabilitation robots, service robots, smart vehicles, autonomous farm equipment, and much more. These devices have mechanical and electrical components, sensors, and computer software - all working together, harmoniously. As automation and robotics increase around us, so the companies need engineers with specialized knowledge of these topics. The field of Mechatronics Engineering emerged out of this need to develop the best possible design while seamlessly merging mechanical and electronics knowledge. Mechatronics Engineers have the interdisciplinary knowledge necessary to oversee the design and development of such intelligent devices from beginning to end, rather than completing mechanical, electrical and control designs separately.
    The degree program in Mechatronics Engineering at RMUTT is one of only a few programs in Thailand and abroad.

Academic Requirements
    Qualification for admission: The graduates of Master of Engineering, Master of Industrial Technology, Master of Science in Technical Education, or related degree programs.
G    raduated from the program of Mechatronics Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, Electrical engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, Industrial Engineering, or related fields
    Applicants for master's degree programs must have the equivalent of a master's degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to a 3.00/4.00 grading scale.
    Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
General Requirements
  • Master’s degree transcript.
  • Master’s degree certificate.
  • Two recommendation letters from an academician. (from Associate Professor, or Professor)
  • International students must have the concurrence of a University Designated School Official (DSO) charged with compliance of Immigration guidelines.
    Before starting a program, you need to have a basic knowledge of the English Language. The TOEIC/ IELTS/ TOEFL is administered in a paper format and measures your ability to use and understand English in a classroom setting at the college or university level. It accurately measures how well you can listen, read and write in English while performing academic tasks.
English Language Requirement Required Score
TOEFL – Paper Based ≥ 433
TOEFL – Computer Based ≥ 120
TOEFL – Internet Based ≥ 40
IELTS ≥ 3.5
TOEIC ≥ 400
RT-TEP ≥ 3.5
