Mechatronic Engineering is a relatively new engineering field that has emerged as a result of rapid change in technology demands for more economical and high performance products.
Mechatronic Engineering is a synergistic combination of Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Software Engineering. It involves techniques in precision engineering, control theory, electronics, robotics, computer and information science in the design, manufacturing and control processes to create functional, adaptable and intelligent products.
Mechatronic engineers play a key role in national, and local economies by utilizing their expertise in the design and development of intelligent systems, automation of production systems and control of various manufacturing processes.
In order to meet the challenging training demands, the Mechatronic Engineering program at JKUAT offers fundamental education in engineering sciences and design. The engineering science component exposes studnets to the fundamental principles of engineering, while the engineering design component focuses on design methodology in enhancing creative skills and developing students’ ability to solve open-ended problems encountered in industry.
