The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a minor in mechatronics for undergraduates outside of the mechanical engineering program. Mechatronics utilizes the principles of mechanical, electric, control, and computer engineering to create fully-featured systems and robots. Only courses completed with a grade of "C" or better are accepted towards the minor.
