Work at the Forefront of Technology

Mechatronics combines principles of mechanics, engineering, and computing to create and improve new technology that contains artificial intelligence.

Mechatronics are used in self-driving cars, biotechnology, robots, robotic-assisted surgical systems, NASA's Curiosity Rover, system integrators, and even the Roomba.
