MECHATRONICS

AND LIFE LAB

The term “Mechatronics” 

It was first coined in Japan in 1969 to refer to the blending of Mechanical and Electronics systems together as a whole but continues to expand to other fields of engineering science including but not limited to computer, telecommunications, systems, fluid power, and control engineering. An obvious example of mechatronics systems technology in use are transportation vehicles such as automobiles, aircraft, watercraft, and spacecraft which utilize the advances in sensors, microprocessor, and advanced controls for faster and more precise performance. Nuclear power and advanced manufacturing plants are other excellent examples that utilize mechatronic systems technology to accomplish highly sophisticated and precise operations. Another buzzword used synonymously for mechatronics is “electromechanical engineering.” 

Life Lab

Exclusive to Mechatronic students, Life Lab is embedded in the program training experience and includes lecture, discussions, hands-on application, projects and cooperative learning in these four areas.
