The Department of Applied Computing brings together those faculty and programs in the College of Computing with a common interest in applied aspects of computing.
The areas of study within the Applied Computing department—computer networks, cybersecurity, mechatronics, electrical engineering technology, and health informatics—are key technologies for the development of advanced capabilities in modern manufacturing, industry, and healthcare, and as such College of Computing degree programs provide graduates with skills that are in high demand, now and in the future.
Focus on Mechatronics
Mechatronics Machining System
Dr Alex Sergeyev and Chinmay Kondekar, ’21 MS, discuss and demonstrate Kondekar’s Mechatronics system design project in a new video from Applied Computing.
The Mechatronics Playground
The Mechatronics Playground facilitates hands-on industry-specific training for BS students. This lab was generously funded in 2020 by Donald Engineering and vendors.
Students Specialize in Mechatronics
A synergy of mechanical and electrical systems, computer hardware and software, Mechatronics is the design and implementation of automated systems.
