About Course

Mechatronic is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the electro-mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering.


Mechatronics combines electronics and mechanical engineering. This combination is used in the design of electro-mechanical products and manufacturing. Application of mechatronics results in synchronizing a mechanical structure with its control, using electronic systems. Mechatronic systems have made it very easy to design processes and products. Application of mechatronics facilitates rapid setting up and cost-effective operations of manufacturing facilities. Mechatronic systems help in optimizing performance and quality.Many medical applications such as magnetic resonance, ultrasonic probes, arthroscopic devices use mechatronics. It is used in automation like automatic air conditioning systems, security system, automatic door systems and many more applications. Hence mechatronic engineers should possess the core skills not only in mechanical engineering but also in electrical and electronics engineering. These knowledge enables them to solve a wide range of mechanical, electrical and software problems, allowing them to participate in and lead multidisciplinary design teams.
