Mechatronic Engineering

Undergraduate Program in Mechatronic Engineering

Mechatronic Engineering develops engineers who work to automate the machines that control the functioning of other machines and complex systems with no need for human intervention. For this, they must understand the workings of machines and mechanical devices, control and automation, electronic instrumentation and computer programing.

Because of their knowledge of mechanical, electronic and computer engineering, mechatronic engineers find a wide array of job opportunities in the industrial sector (chemical, automotive, aviation, shipping, oil and gas) as well as the services sector (information technology, banking automation, automation system integration and consulting firms). The field also offers excellent opportunities for entrepreneurs who want to start their own business, working to apply the technologies learned to create solutions for users and companies, which include the development of, for example, medical devices, residential automation systems, smart home appliances and applications for mobile devices that interact with the physical world.
