Mechatronic engineering is one of the newest branches of engineering, and has far-reaching applications to every sector of society. The name Mechatronics stems from mechanical and electronics and is a relatively new approach to product design and development, merging the principles of electrical, mechanical, computer and industrial engineering. It addresses the four interconnected disciplines used for all complex modern devices. Mechatronic systems are typically composed of traditional mechanical and electrical components but are referred to as "smart" devices or systems because of the incorporation of sensors, actuators and computer control systems. In automotive industry, modern automotive manufacturers are dealing with a growing trend to blend mechanical, electro-mechanical, digital control systems, and electronic design elements into one integrated system.

 

Career Path 

Mechatronic graduates are in great demand as industries seek to apply evolutionary advances in computers, electronics, sensors, and actuators to improve their products, processes and services. Graduates are in demand wherever there is potential for improvement in the integration of computer and electrical hardware with mechanical systems. Mechatronics graduates can work in any company that develops designs or manufactures and markets "smart" devices. Opportunities exist in manufacturing, sales and as well as research. Mechatronic devices have crept into everyday life.

Program Learning Outcome

  1. Apply knowledge of mathemathics, science,  mechatronics engineering fundamentals and automotive fundamentals to define and applied engineering procedures, process, systems or methodologies.
  2. Identify,formulate, research literature, modelling, simulate and solve broadly-defined engineering problems reaching subtantiated conclusions using appropriate analytical tools related to mechtronics and automotive engineering technology.
  3. Design solutions for broadly-defined engineering technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or process to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems: locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusion.
  5. Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering tools, including prediction and modeling to broadly-defined engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. Function effectively as an individual and as a member or leaderin diverse technical teams.
  7. Communicate effectively on broadly-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations and give/receive clear instructions.
  8. Demostrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice.
  9. Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice.
  10. Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a societal context and demostrate knowledge of and the need for sustainable development.
  11. Demonstrate an awareness and understanding of management, business practices, and technopreneurial competencies.
  12. Recognize the need for improvement and have the ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning.
