The Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering (MSMTR) degree program is an interdisciplinary degree program offered by the College of Engineering
(CEN) that draws on the expertise of faculty from the different CEN departments.
The MSMTR degree program is committed to being an international, multidisciplinary center of excellence in synergistic applications of the latest techniques in embedded systems, precision mechanical engineering, control theory, computer science and electronics through education, research and outreach. The technological gap between developing and industriaIized nations continues to widen at an alarming rate, largely due to the lack of skilled engineers capable of integrating new technologies into existing systems and networks. The mandate of the mechatronics engineering program is to improve this situation by equipping engineers with the design, analysis and synthesis abilities to plan, implement and manage the latest technologies. The curriculum of the mechatronics program meets the region's needs both present and future-through the education of engineers and scientists.
Professional jobs considered to be in the mechatronics engineering field are grounded in the multidisciplinary aspects of electrical, mechanical, control, computer and software engineering. The unique skills of mechatronics graduates are becoming increasingly valuable to employers in a variety of areas, including modern industrial installations and systems, computer integrated manufacturing systems, maintenance diagnosis and troubleshooting, defense systems, vehicle design and manufacturing, robotics and many more.
The MSMTR degree program provides students with state-of-the-art knowledge in their areas of specialization with practical strategies for adapting that knowledge to serve the specific needs of the region. Multidisciplinary engineers are needed now more than ever to meet the demand for a flexible engineering workforce to deal with highly integrated engineering systems.
