The Mechatronic Systems Engineering program is offered jointly by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, and is supervised by a joint curriculum committee. Administrative duties are performed by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The objective of the program is to train students in the design and analysis of intelligent electromechanical systems.
Students in the Mechatronic Systems Engineering program follow the same curriculum for the first year as other engineering students.
Students entering the Mechatronic Systems Engineering program must have completed the entire first year program in Engineering, with no outstanding credits to be taken, and have a Year Weighted Average (YWA) of at least 70%. First consideration will be given to applicants with a minimum grade of 60% in each of the following courses: Applied Mathematics 1411A/B, Applied Mathematics 1413, Engineering Science 1022A/B/Y, Engineering Science 1036A/B, Engineering Science 1050, Physics 1401A/B and Physics 1402A/B.
