Mechatronics: Mechanics meets Electronics

Mechatronics is the combination of mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and software engineering. The purpose of this interdisciplinary engineering field is the study of automata from an engineering perspective and serves the purposes of controlling advanced hybrid systems.

The hard disk drive (HDD) is an excellent example of the practical application of precision mechatronics. The video shows SC4 students demonstrating the mechatronic robot they built while in the SC4 Mechatronics program.

For more information take a look at the mechatronics newsletter.
