Program Information

School:McMaster University
Faculty:Faculty of Engineering
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Engineering, Other
Description: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.

The demands of current and future technologies requires engineers that have interdisciplinary skills. The breadth of education required by Mechatronics engineers will not only provide such skills in the short term, but will enable them in the long term to effectively adapt to rapidly shifting technologies.
