Mechatronics Engineering Bachelors Degree

Mechatronics Engineering is an innovative degree combining practical skills from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science. Graduates will be well-skilled at the immense hands-on application of robotic technology and can select from a wide spectrum of industries for career choices.

  • Program educational objectives are benchmarks for career and professional
    accomplishments that the degree program prepares graduates to achieve during
    the first few years following graduation. The mechatronics engineering program
    seeks to produce graduates who:
    1. Meet requirements that will enable them to pursue and achieve
      registration as professional engineers in the state of Georgia and other
    2. Demonstrates career advancement with increasing responsibility in the
      Mechatronics Engineering industry or allied disciplines.
    3. Possess effective research and development skills that will enable
      engagement in graduate education and professional development in
      Mechatronics Engineering or related fields.
  • Student outcomes describe the knowledge and skills acquired by students who complete the program. Students completing the program will have:
    1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
    2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
    3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
    4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
    5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
    6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
    7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
