Mechatronics Engineering is a modern discipline that transcends the boundaries between Embedded Systems, Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Engineering. It is a discipline that focuses on the design and control of electro-mechanical devices, as well as the integration of electronics, control engineering and mechanical engineering.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills by identifying, evaluating, analyzing, synthesizing and presenting fundamental engineering and technical issues and their applications.

2. Demonstrate the knowledge of current engineering practices and broad technology used in industry, including a working knowledge of software, hardware, robotics, automation and other engineering techniques.

3. Be cognizant of emerging new technologies and industrial practices connected to engineering and demonstrate understanding of the role of various technologies in society.

4. Demonstrate cooperation skills by working effectively with others in interdisciplinary group settings - both inside and outside the classroom.

5. Demonstrate technical and presentation skills and a sense of exploration that enables them to pursue rewarding careers in high-tech and engineering industries.
