Course Description

What is Mechatronic Engineering?

Mechatronics is the discipline concerned with the integration of mechanical, electronic and software engineering.

Mechatronics is an exciting field because it combines the knowledge and skills of these three engineering disciplines. A detailed understanding of how mechanical, electronic and software engineering areas interact enables the development of ‘smart’ products and systems such as computer-controlled robots, washing machines, automotive equipment, medical imaging systems, wind and wave generators, advanced CNC machines and hybrid and electric vehicles. Mechatronics has applications in a range of fields, including robotics, medical and assistive technology, human-machine interaction, manufacturing, unmanned aerial vehicles and education.
