What is Mechatronics?

Mechatronics is the intersections of mechanics, electronics, robotics, and computing and creates simpler, more economical, and reliable systems. What sets this degree program apart is the way it brings together engineering and computing to create something entirely new. This convergence is the very essence of “Industry 4.0” and the future of manufacturing and industry. This multidisciplinary degree fulfills the need for applied researchers and for entrepreneurs to revitalize the US and global economies in advanced manufacturing and automation. Are you ready?

Accelerated Master's Program is available for current Michigan Tech students.
