Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering Technology, BS

Central to Creating Effective Solutions.

Central’s BS in Robotics & Mechatronics Engineering Technology provides students with a solid foundation employing computer control systems to make devices smarter and more efficient.

Students learn how to handle vast amounts of data and create systems that make sense of data in real time so that fully automated manufacturing facilities can operate safely and efficiently, or a car can drive completely autonomously. The curriculum incorporates advance/latest technology in Automation, Robotics, Controls, Machine Vision, Instrumentation and Sensors, Computing and Processing etc.

Graduates may be involved in creating planetary exploration rovers, robots from precision manufacturing, or devices that assist the elderly.
