Welcome to the Mechatronics Option!
As society advances technologically, there is a higher and higher demand for mechanical devices with embedded electronics, sensors, actuators and related systems. The Mechatronics Option in Mechanical Engineering provides an interdisciplinary, tightly focused approach to designing such devices, producing professionally trained Mechatronics engineers who can have an immediate impact in industry.
The Mechatronics Option combines core undergraduate mechanical courses, selected electronics and software engineering courses, and several option-specific courses in an interdisciplinary approach to Mechatronics design. Students in the option graduate with professional skills in classical machine design and analysis, as well as electronic instrumentation, computer control systems, and software engineering.
