Mechatronics and Robotics

Mechatronics and robotics engineering integrates mechanics, electronics and computer technology to develop, enhance and automate some of the world’s most advanced machinery, products and systems.

Dreams of the future become today’s innovations when engineers take ideas from science fiction and turn them into reality. With broad and diverse applications, from developing robots and aerial drones, to automating manufacturing processes, mechatronics and robotics engineering is at the forefront of the technology revolution.
