Students Specialize in Mechatronics

Mechanical and electrical systems know-how and computer hardware and software skills are employed by Mechatronics professionals.

Solving the challenges of the age of automation.

Michigan Tech Mechatronics has been a great learning experience for me. I was looking for a discipline that combines Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science principles, and the Mechatronics program has been the right answer for that. Faculty in the program always make themselves available to students, and they have been instrumental in my success not only through their teaching and guiding, but also mentoring.
