Mechatronic systems engineers use precision mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering, as well as math and computer science, to design the enhanced products, systems, and manufacturing processes demanded by today’s marketplace.
Mechatronic systems engineers use precision mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering, as well as math and computer science, to design the enhanced products, systems, and manufacturing processes demanded by today’s marketplace. Using advanced scientific and engineering knowledge, mechatronic systems engineers combine mechanical, electric, and electronic subsystems to create single controllable systems.
The automobile today contains over 100 computers – and is just one of the many modern machines, from clothes dryers and dishwashers to auto-focus cameras and ATMs, that relies on mechatronic systems. Mechatronic systems engineers also play an indispensable role in industrial robotics and the development of autonomous (unmanned) vehicles, which can function as everything from space probes to mobile military reconnaissance units.
