Overview

The department of Mechatronics Engineering (MEE) offers a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics Engineering in four years with a total of 150 credits.

Robotics and automation are among the major emerging technology breakthroughs that paved the way for the forth industrial revolution.Mechatronics engineers are the fuel driving the engines of development and innovation in this revolution. According to the French standards NF E01-010, Mechatronics is an “approach aiming at the synergistic integration of mechanics, electronics, control theory, and computer science within product design and manufacturing, in order to improve and/or optimize its functionality".

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objective of the Mechatronics Engineering (MEE) program is to yield individuals who:
  • Design, automate, and manage mechatronic systems or processes.
  • Tackle new issues by adapting new technologies and paradigms or by proposing new solutions after performing systematical investigation on the state of the art developments.
  • Participate in a team and communicate their knowledge, ideas and views.
  • Respect environmental aspects, ethical and technology standard, economical concerns, and society values.

Program Outcome Objectives

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
