|Description:||Mechatronics Engineering is a modern discipline that transcends the boundaries between Embedded Systems, Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Engineering. Mechatronics Engineering is commonly defined as "The discipline that focuses on the design and control of electro-mechanical devices" or "the integration of electronics, control engineering and mechanical engineering."
Today's designers are faced with the task of combining elements of mechanics, electronics, embedded systems and digital signal processing, while coping with the miniaturization of components and use of prefabricated parts. The synthesis of different technologies is already included in modern precision engineering. Continuing developments in miniaturization and fabrication will provide further challenges for Mechatronics Engineers.
