The Bachelor of Science degree in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering integrates mechanical, electrical and computer engineering as well as controls. Mechatronics and Robotics engineering revolves around the design, construction and operation of automated and robotics systems, which result from the integration of software and hardware.

Program Objectives

Our graduates:

  1. Will be employed in electrical engineering related fields or in other career fields in industry, business, academe, government or non-profit organizations
  2. Will continue to enhance their professional skills by participating in professional organizations, completing additional college courses or completing industry-sponsored short courses

Student Learning Outcomes

Mechatronics and Robotics engineering graduates will successfully demonstrate the 7 ABET program outcomes:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles on engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors. 
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
