The name Mechatronics stems from combining mechanical and electronics. The technology is a new approach to design and development and allows you to combine several disciplines including electronics, mechanics, robotics, instrumentation and computer control systems. Together, the industrial applications allow engineers and technicians to work together in planning and designing to solve complex industrial problems. Texas is among the largest employers in this field in the nation and demand in the state continues to outpace the national average.
Mechatronics courses combine various disciplines to teach you a holistic approach to develop solutions for engineering applications. You’ll be able to add to your skill set practical knowledge in the integration of electrical systems, fluid power, electronics, computer controls, PLCs, instrumentation, robotics and information technology. It’s an exciting interdisciplinary field that makes possible the generation of simpler, more economical, reliable and versatile commercial and industrial products and equipment.
