Mechatronics Engineering Technology, BS


About the Program

The Mechatronics Engineering Technology major is part of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program.  The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

This is one of three majors offered for students who seek to contribute at the interface between manufacturing, electrical, mechanical, and computing areas in primarily industrial environments. When you major in mechatronics engineering technology, you will focus on the development of the electromechanical products that are ubiquitous in modern life, dealing with interconnections that allow electronic control of mechanical, pneumatic, and hydraulic systems.

Critical Course


The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
