From robotics to automation

The mechatronics engineering degree at Anderson University combines mechanical and electronic engineering with the purpose of teaching its graduates how to design smarter and better systems. Although the program is closely related to the study of robotics, mechatronics engineering focuses more on hardware and will be a needed skill as automation and manufacturing continues to expand.

Tomorrow's mechatronics engineers are starting right here.

Fuel your passion for robotics and automation.

Mechatronics engineers use their knowledge of mechanical, electrical, and software systems to design and implement better, safer, and smarter tools, systems, automations, and products. At AU, mechatronics engineering students will learn to develop strong skills in all of these areas.

Mechatronics engineering classes are taught by the same professors who teach in our ABET-accredited engineering majors. Students will gain background and experience in optimal controls, robust controls, adaptable controls, robotics, machine learning, computer vision, and more.
