Mechatronic Systems Engineering
This area of specialization is designed to meet the needs of industry and federal research laboratories for engineers with multidisciplinary experience and ability to design and integrate complex systems requiring knowledge from diverse engineering disciplines. Said differently, mechatronics involves integration of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering to design complex systems that perform real-world tasks. This program includes a broad set of common course requirements along with a selection of appropriate technical electives providing both breadth and depth of knowledge in a student’s area of interest.
The MSE program offers one area of specialization:
This program is a combination of core courses, specialization areas (depth requirement) and technical electives (breadth requirement). Each student is required to complete two core courses. Students, along with their advisor, should develop a plan of study choosing thematic sequences of courses from different specialization areas, but they should keep in mind the 4000-level requirement of the degree.
