Solve tomorrow’s challenges with a mechatronics and robotics degree!
With advances in technology and unprecedented worker shortages, industries are increasingly relying on robotic applications. 

Historically, separate individuals with expertise in computer engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering designed machines, but as manufacturers move toward more technologically driven automated systems, there is a growing demand for professionals with experience in all these areas. The Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering at Trine University will equip you to develop automated systems and smart solutions to solve tomorrow’s industry challenges.

The degree: Mechatronics and robotics core built on an engineering foundation

Trine University’s Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering degree is built on mechanical and electrical engineering principles, with an additional mechatronics and robotics core that prepares graduates for the practice of robotics engineering at the professional level. You will graduate the program with a breadth and depth of knowledge to address technical issues.

The experience: Test principles through hands-on lab work

Courses in the Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering will give you a foundation in the theory of mechatronics and robotics engineering, enhanced through laboratory experimentation and design. You will graduate with not only a wealth of engineering knowledge, but the hands-on experience and skills employers desire.

The result: A successful career in a growing field

Your Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering degree will allow you to pursue a variety of graduate studies, engineering careers and continuing education. Mechatronics and robotics engineers can work in industry, laboratories or engineering offices, and can be involved with research in emerging fields such as bioengineering and nanotechnology.

Annual salaries for mechatronics and robotics engineers typically range in the $70,000s and $80,000s.
