Mechatronics Engineering Program
Program graduates are equipped with an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering principles, an ability to design and conduct experiments as well as to analyze and interpret data, an ability to design a component, system or process to meet an objective, an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams, an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems, an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities, and global issues related to engineering, an ability to communicate effectively, the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context and a knowledge of contemporary issues. Graduating students as modern, inquisitive and creative engineers is another goal of the program.

Aims and Goals
The Mechatronics Engineering undergraduate program aims to satisfy the academic goals as set by the Faculty of Engineering that applies to all its departments. Consistent with these goals, the educational objectives of the program can be stated as follows: Provide a firm foundation in mathematics, engineering and basic sciences as required by the engineering discipline. Provide a selection of interdisciplinary and general education courses that will enhance students’ understanding of the economic, environmental, ethical, political, societal, and cultural impact of their engineering solutions and/or decisions. Provide the essential tools and fundamental background of the disciplines of Mechatronics Engineering. Encourage self-learning, life-long learning, and help develop a strong sense of responsibility. Provide students with a satisfactory level of competence in the analysis and solution of engineering problems. Provide students the opportunities to work in a team, either as a member or as a team leader. Prepare the graduates for the industry or postgraduate studies.

Mechatronics Engineering program trains its students to have strong theoretical and practical expertise; outstanding communication and teamwork skills; and invaluable entrepreneurial and business experience. Committed to developing the next generation of innovative high-tech leaders, we value creatively, integrity, innovation and excellence in our teaching methods and industry engagements.

We are fully focused on being a world-leading research and educational mechatronics engineering program with an emphasis on practical-oriented training, rich industrial partnerships and dynamic entrepreneurial intelligence. We will continue to foster this approach through increasingly multidisciplinary methods and a highly engaged research faculty.

Language of Instruction
Medium of undergraduate Mechatronics Engineering program is in English language.

English Preparatory Program
Students registering to the undergraduate program in English language of the department are required to follow a one-year English preparatory program.

Job Opportunities
The graduates can select from a wide spectrum of industries for career choices. They can find jobs as mechatronics specialists and also may contribute in variety of roles including project planner, product designer, design engineer, software engineer and so forth. Machine and tool design and production, biomedical and medicine technology, energy production, mining and agriculture are only a few of the areas mechatronics engineers can pursue employment opportunities.
