STEM Students Specialize in Mechatronics

Our students and faculty know what tomorrow needs. Mechatronics studies combine the concepts of engineering, robotics, automation, and controls. That matters because Artificial Intelligence helps businesses stay competitive. And employees with this specialized knowledge have a competitive edge in the hiring process.

Create simpler, smarter systems.

Industry employers want engineers with the total package—a broad spectrum of knowledge to understand, troubleshoot, maintain, and develop entire systems. Mechatronics teaches all of these skills through a combination of disciplines including mechanical, electrical, computer, and systems engineering, along with telecommunications, robotics, automation, and controls. 

Mechatronic engineers apply their knowledge to find creative solutions to engineering problems involving robotic systems in industrial, research, and development settings. Leverage your engineering analysis and design capabilities for successful technical, professional, and entrepreneurial leadership positions.

Automation and robotic use continues to grow globally. Be ready to take your place in high-demand industrial fields. Michigan Tech’s Career Services (including one of the biggest Career Fairs in the nation) can help set you up with interviews that lead to well-paying co-ops, internships, and jobs after graduation.
