This is a highly intensive program with a heavy course load, including strong laboratory components requiring significant teaching and instrumentation resources. We receive a large number of applications from around the world, but can only accommodate a limited number of students each year. Successful candidates will be those with the highest academic standing and the most relevant background in mechatronics subjects such as machine design, electronics, instrumentation, and software, with strong fundamentals in the discipline of Mechanical Engineering.
