Mechatronics Engineering Program Description
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechatronics Engineering provides the student with the necessary knowledge and training to become a professional in the diverse field of Mechatronics Engineering. Mechatronics Engineering is a multidisciplinary segment of the engineering field. Rather than embrace traditional divisions of engineering as distinct entities, the Mechatronics Engineering degree combines electrical engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, control engineering, telecommunications engineering, robotics and cybersecurity. The result is the unification of principles from the various disciplines to create a more economic, reliable, and simplified system. Mechatronics Engineering engineers are the link between technicians and engineers, and work from conception of a project to the completion of the project. <br> <br>Students in this program will: Engage in self-directed continuing professional development; Join a professional society; Compare, contrast and employ the different types of Mechatronics Engineering Systems, and Recognize the legal and ethical considerations for specific types of Mechatronics Engineering operations and demonstrate appropriate actions. The Mechatronics foundation acquired in this program will equip students with the technical skillsets to pursue careers in design, development, analysis, implementation, operation, optimization and management of Mechatronics Engineering Systems and to project leaders, thus improving the field of Mechatronics systems and providing solutions to Mechatronics Engineering challenges. <br>
