Mechatronics Minor

(non-teaching)

The College of Engineering offers a non-teaching minor in Mechatronics. The field of Mechatronics combines the principles of mechanical engineering with the principles of electronic instrumentation and computerized control. Mechatronics exploits the synergy of mechanical and electrical engineering to design unique and innovative electromechanical products, machines, robots, tools, and manufacturing processes.

The minor requires a minimum of 37 credits in specified subject areas: computer science, engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering, and electrical and computer engineering (see tables below).
