This paper presents a technique that was used in the development of Mechatronics courses in Thailand and Australia. The technique was based on project-based learning and industry engagement. Mechatronics course development was supported by AusAID grant to the Royal Thai Government (RTG) to establish six different mechatronics programs in six Universities. Mechanisms were established to ensure industrypsilas input throughout the stages of mechatronics course development at each University. This paper discusses those mechanisms.
