About Department

Mechatronics engineering is the design of computer-controlled electromechanical systems. It can be viewed as ‘modern mechanical engineering design’ in the sense that the design of the mechanical system must be performed together with that of the electrical/electronic and computer control aspects that will comprise the complete system. Some examples of mechatronic systems include a CD or DVD player; a computer hard disc drive; a video cassette recorder (VCR); a fly-by-wire aircraft control system; and an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Each of these products is essentially mechanical in nature, but could not function without the integral design of the electrical and computer control systems that are critical to their operation.

Our Values

The Department has devised a flexible Mechatronics program that accommodates latest advances techniques and merge that with locally required engineering solutions. Our program involves:

1. A continually evolving curriculum that addresses locally challenging engineering problems.

2. Provide classroom as well as non-classroom support throughout the course of study.

3. Modern student-centered education is implemented.

4. Project experiences that build on fundamentals and develop team skills.

5. The department enjoys a rich Laboratory environment which can accommodate a variety of experiments that resembles real life engineering challenges.

The academic staff, as well as the admin, are quite focused on providing high standard education with the latest available technology to produce multi-disciplinary engineers that can face and tackle the challenges in the field of Robotics and Automation in real life.
