Mechatronic Engineering Major


Mechatronic engineering involves the study of computer-controlled systems that form the basis of the 'intelligent' products that are ubiquitous in today's society.

This major allows students to understand the interconnection between disciplines such as mechanical, electrical and systems engineering, as well as computer science, and provides a foundation for cutting-edge technologies in fields including robotics, manufacturing, aerospace and bioengineering.

This major best aligns with the Biomedical stream. You can not enrol in the Mechatronic Engineering Major within the Mechatronic stream.
