Systems Engineering Master's - Mechatronics Overview
If you are creative, analytical, have critical thinking skills and like to work with your hands, the field of mechatronics is where you could flourish. Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary approach to engineering that involves the design of autonomous machines or systems by applying knowledge of mechanical, electrical, robotic, and computer science engineering to create smart technologies that improve everyday functions. Today’s industries are constantly looking for ways to simplify, increase productivity and lower costs, which is why mechatronics is such an important field of study.
If a career in mechatronics peaks your interest, you could find yourself in various work environments ranging from high tech laboratories, manufacturing plants, automotive centers, aerospace organizations, and even the television and film industry to create props and special effects.
With this degree, students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience through a hands-on learning approach necessary to building complex systems and understanding autonomous machines.
