A young man works in a lab doing electronic engineering work. He holds a tool like a soldering device and performs work on a circuit board. He is in his twenties with dark hair and glasses. He wears a short beard and dark short-sleeved t-shirt.

Mechatronics Program

Work in Robotics and AI

Mechanics, Engineering, Computing

Mechatronics combines principles of mechanics, engineering, and computing to create and improve new technology that contains artificial intelligence.

Work at the Forefront of Technology

Mechatronics are used in self-driving cars, robots, anti-lock brakes, robotic-assisted surgical systems, NASA's Curiosity Rover, and the Roomba.
