Mechatronics

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Education in mechatronics involves study and research in a wide variety of laboratories. Specialized laboratories for robotics, microprocessor systems, control systems, and sustainable energy are often utilized. CAD/CAM systems and multimedia computer equipment are also used in mechatronics education.

From indigenous civilizations to modern day empires, North America has plenty of hands-on educational opportunities to offer scholars. Filled with a range of distinct cultures, students can educate themselves in well-rounded way.

ADMISSIONS AND ENTRY The Master of Engineering (MEng) program offers a practice-oriented education that prepares graduates for real-world engineering challenges. Degree requirements The Master of Engineering (MEng) requires the completion of 30 hours of coursework. At least half of the coursework, not including the practice-oriented project, must be in engineering. This minimum may be higher in some academic emphases. A thesis is not required; however, a practice-oriented project of up to 6 hours is optional in some emphases. Within the total of 30 units, you must complete a minimum of 3 units in applied engineering mathematics, as well as 3 units of engineering management or business. You must take at least 10 units of coursework from your home institution. Prior to graduation, you must satisfy the requirements of a capstone event, which is developed and administered by your advisory committee. Also, note the following policies that apply to all students who choose NAU as their home institution: The Graduate College at NAU requires at least 24 hours of formal coursework—that is, courses other than individualized courses such as independent study, research and master's project. You may apply up to two 400-level courses toward your degree (6 credit hours maximum). A limit of 25% of your coursework (a maximum of 7.5 hours) may be transferred from accredited institutions outside Arizona, provided the grade is "A" or "B". You will need to fill in a petition to transfer form and ask for the signature of the chair of your advisory committee. You are responsible for choosing the chair and members of your advisory committee by the time you complete 9 units of coursework. Also, no later than the first month of the semester in which the 10th credit unit is taken, you must submit a program of study (POS) listing all coursework intended to satisfy the MEng degree requirements. Note that the POS is subject to the approval of your advisory committee and the Graduate Programs Director at NAU. Additional requirements for each of the program emphases are described on the specific departmental pages. Each academic emphasis has specific course requirements in addition to the general program requirements described above. If you do not have a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent in Mechanical Engineering, then you will be required to complete pre-admission courses to achieve equivalency. [-]
