Adding to its cache of degree programs that prepare graduates to meet the needs of
industry, Trine University has launched a Bachelor of Science in mechatronics and
robotics engineering degree program.
Classes for the new program begin in August.
Part of the Wade Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, Trine University’s
Bachelor of Science in mechatronics and robotics engineering degree is built on foundations
from Trine’s mechanical and electrical engineering programs, with an additional mechatronics
and robotics core that prepares graduates to practice robotics engineering at the
“With advances in technology and unprecedented worker shortages, industries are increasingly
relying on robotic applications,” said Ryan Overton, Ph.D., dean of the Allen School
of Engineering and Computing. “In the past, separate individuals with expertise in
computer engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering designed machines.
However, as manufacturers move toward more technologically driven automated systems,
there is a growing demand for professionals with experience in all these areas.”
Trine University’s mechatronics and robotics engineering program seeks to provide
students with the breadth and depth of knowledge needed to solve tomorrow’s industry
challenges by giving them the skills to develop automated systems and smart solutions.
Those who earn the degree will be prepared to pursue graduate studies and continuing
education in addition to engineering careers.
Mechatronics and robotics engineering is the latest addition to nearly 120 years of
engineering education at Trine, and continues the university’s long history of offering
programs that lead to employment for graduates. Over the past seven years, more than
99 percent of Trine graduates have been employed or in graduate school within six
months of commencement.
