The Mechatronics Engineering program is a synergistic combination of four distinct discipline: electrical engineering, mechanical engineering computer science, and control systems. Mechatronics Engineers are dubbed as "precision engineers" and are expected to provide solutions and innovations in a highly-mechanized systems.
The Mechatronics Engineering program of The Future University (BSMcE) is aimed at producing responsible professionals who are not only knowledgeable and technically competent but likewise, professionals who are aware of their social accountabilities and obligations. The program is designed to prepare the students who can adapt to the synergy of technical, social and political systems. Graduates of this program are expected to develop product and/or services that can not be realized solely by one engineering discipline.
The curricular structure of the BSc (Hons) in Mechatrinics Engineering (BSMcE) program was revised to comply with the recommendations of the NAE's "Educating the Engineers of 2020" and the IEEE/ACM Computing Curriculum for Mechatrinics Engineering. It is a 10-semester program that comprises of:
- Languages and Humanities (28)
- Foundational Mathematics (12)
- Foundational Sciences (18)
- Foundational Computing (6)
- Engineering Core Courses (60)
- Electrical Engineering Depth (39)
- Mechatrinics Specialization Courses (45)
The BSMcE curriculum satisfies the a-k program outcomes of the engineering programs recommended by the ABET. At the end of 10-semester program, the student is expected to demonstrate:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- an ability to communicate effectively the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning a knowledge of contemporary issues
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
