Unique to Mechatronics/Robotics
Mechatronics is the combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control, and systems thinking in the design of products and manufacturing processes. Working with highly automated equipment, students learn how to design and build complex systems like those used in robots, electrical cars, and manufacturing processes.
Mechatronics/Robotics students have the opportunity for leadership, competition, and community service through membership in NECA (National Electric Cart Association).
