Mechatronics, BS

The Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics is designed to provide students with an interdisciplinary set of skills that will enable them to successfully compete in today’s fast-changing manufacturing environment. The program is designed to equip students with the knowledge and relevant experience in the four major areas that compose mechatronics and to help students play key roles in the Fourth Industrial Revolution—mechanical systems, electrical systems, control systems, and computer engineering. Successful graduates will understand in-depth the engineering fundamentals, the related technologies, and their integration in robotic and mechatronic devices and automation systems.
