Mechatronics Technology - Program Description

The Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary program which embraces the necessary skills of traditional programs of mechanical, electrical, computer, and controls engineering. The base knowledge is then applied to integrating mechanical, electrical, software, and controls into practice through applied problem solutions before graduation.

Students in this Major

  • Will be able to apply mathematics, science, and engineering principles
  • Will be able to design and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data
  • Will be able to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
  • Will be able to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • Will be able to function on multidisciplinary teams, professional and ethically communicate
  • Will be able to react to the impacts of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
