Mechatronics Systems Engineering
The Mechatronics Systems Engineering Certificate is intended for working engineers in mechanical engineering and related fields. The certificate program introduces students to the primary technologies, analysis techniques, and implementation methodologies relevant to the detailed design of electro-mechanical devices. Completion of the certificate will allow the student to develop systems that involve the sensing, actuation and control of the physical world. Knowledge such as this is vital to engineers in the modern aerospace, robotics and motion control industries.
Applicants must have completed an accredited Bachelor’s degree program in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, or a related field. They are expected to have prior course work in mathematics through differential equations, introductory linear control theory, and introductory electronics and programming.
Students must complete a total of 16 units as described below, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a grade of C or better in each course.
Required Courses (8 units):
Elective Courses (8 units):
An independent study or Capstone project would be suitable as one of the electives. In addition, other courses may serve as electives at the discretion of the program advisor.
