Course Outcomes

Mechatronics Disciplines

Explain what disciplines comprise Mechatronics. Explain how the discipline of mechatronics is an integration of ideas and technologies from the contributing disciplines.

Mechatronics and IT

Explain how the fields of Information Technology (IT) and Mechatronics interact

Integrated Systems

Explain design approaches for integrated (multi-disciplinary) systems and how they are applied to Mechatronics (systems design)

Design Mechatronics Modules

Design system modules with heterogenous component technologies including industrial control (PLC/SCADA/other), sensors and actuators, interface electronics and embedded computer components


Design, develop and demonstrate a complete mechatronic project using a variety of mechatronic technologies, including IT design aspects.


Analyze and report on design elements from various technologies and their integration for their intended purpose(s) in Mechatronic systems.
