Mechatronics Engineering

About the Department

Today, with the rapid improvement of technology in the sectors of machinery, electronics, computer hardware and computer software and at the same time the development of industrial automation has started to use intelligent machines and robots in the industry, there has been a need for a new engineering field that can find place in all stages of the development of these new technologies. A mechatronic product consists of motor systems for generating mechanical power, mechanical systems for transferring power, sensors for sensing changes, microprocessor for controlling the system, and computer programs that control the entire system or machine in a central or distributed structure. Mechatronics Engineering is a combination of related fields of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical-Electronics Engineering and Computer Engineering in order to design and manufacture the above mentioned technologies. Mechatronics Engineering Program is a unit that enables quality engineers who can utilize time, resources and work power economically and at the same time make technological designs by using today's technology and engineering productivity in the most productive way with considering environmental facts.

 

Education Opportunities

Education and training activities in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering are provided in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and in classrooms with all the technological facilities required by our time. There are eight faculty members who have completed master's and doctoral degrees in qualified and well-known universities. Mechatronics Engineering students also take courses together with students in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering departments besides Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department. In this way, our courses are carried out in a multi-disciplinary manner and the colaboration of students from different disciplines is ensured. The faculty members are composed of experienced academicians who carry out scientific studies in their own fields of expertise, conducting thesis advisories to graduate and doctoral students. Our program's language is English. Thanks to the English language education, which is a global language, our students will be able to easily follow the references written in English and improve themselves while working on their courses and practicing their profession throughout life.

 

Career Areas

Mechatronics Engineering has a wide range of applications and working areas. It is necessary for mankind to get help from machines to do tasks that are too heavy to be done with human power, small and detailed enough to be done with human sensitivity, or that are dangerous to human beings. Mechatronic Engineers play a major role in designing and manufacturing these machines. Applications of Mechatronics Engineering include Health Robots, Agricultural Robots, Automotive Industry, Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS), Flying Robots, Robot Vision, Industrial Automation, Intelligent Weapon and Weapon Systems, Micro Robots, Mobile Robots and Industrial Robots. Industrial companies operating in these fields in the world need educated engineers in this new field and the International Cyprus University Mechatronics Engineering Program is a unit that provides engineers with the qualifications needed by these companies.
