Mechatronics engineering, is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering. As technology advances over time, various subfields of engineering have succeeded in both adapting and multiplying. The intention of Mechatronics is to produce a design solution that unifies each of these various subfields. Originally, the field of Mechatronics was intended to be nothing more than a combination of mechanics and electronics, hence the name being a portmanteau of mechanics and electronics; however, as the complexity of technical systems continued to evolve, the definition had been broadened to include more technical areas.A Mechatronics engineer unites the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to generate a simpler, more economical and reliable system. The term "Mechatronics" was coined by Tetsuro Mori, the senior engineer of the Japanese company Yaskawa in 1969. An industrial robot is a prime example of a Mechatronics system; it includes aspects of electronics, mechanics, and computing to do its day-to-day jobs.
The department of Mechatronics Engineering hosts experienced and qualified faculty members specialized in the latest areas various engineering disciplines such as Machine Design, Advanced Materials, Robotics& Automation, 3D printing, Instrumentation and communication and so on. The department also has well equipped laboratories relevant for the programme. Active engagement of the students with research and innovation by hosting competitions and partaking in national and international conventions boost the confidence of both the faculty and the students in their own capability. Design and programming of modern mechatronic tools such as CNC machines, drones and 3D printers are considered necessary skills for the world of tomorrow.
The department is actively involved in hosting many additional software and hardware training programs for students as per industrial requirements. Department focuses on individual student to motivates and create the mindset for their success through counseling. The department conducts technical workshops, conferences, national level technical competitions, social activities etc.
