Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering

The Master of Science degree in Mechatronics Engineering provides an advanced theoretical and/or research-oriented curriculum with significant depth in mechatronics-related discipline, beyond the general fundamentals of the engineering bachelor's degree.

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field comprising the principles of mechanical, electrical, computer and controls engineering (Figure 1). At the intersection of several engineering fields, mechatronics aims at providing a unified solution that connects various stages of design and production processes into a single, streamlined system. 

In today’s world, many complex devices are designed as an integrated hardware-software system combining hardware components with software components.

As a result, more companies are now adopting a less-conventional philosophy of interdisciplinary collaboration further signifying the importance and need for advanced degrees in mechatronics engineering. Some of the common application areas of mechatronics include industrial robotics, computer-driven machinery, automotive engineering, machine vision and inspection, medical imaging, healthcare automation, robotic surgery, computer aided design, smart sensing and control systems and transportation.
