Mechatronics Engineering is synergistic combination of mechanics, electronics and computing to generate a simpler, economical and reliable system. The term "Mechatronics" was coined by Tetsuro Mori, the senior engineer of the Japanese company Yaskawa in the year 1969. An industrial robot is a prime example of a Mechatronics system which includes aspects of electronics, mechanics, and computing to do day-to-day jobs.
The Department of Mechatronics Engineering is distinctively positioned to educate the technological leaders of tomorrow. The Mechatronics field is challenging and can elevate students to greater career success if they work hard.
