The Mechatronics Engineering Technology program at Purdue University Northwest is a Synergistic integration of Mechanical, Electrical, Control, Hydraulics, High Speed Automation, Robotics, Networking, and Computer Systems for Industry. Students will learn automation and industrial control, integration of robotics in advanced manufacturing, electrical power and machinery, computer aided design, production design and specification required for the closely aligned manufacturing and packaging industries. Industrial collaboration and internship reinforces course work and provides real world experience, an invaluable credential sought by industry. Students will complete a Senior Design Project, which is a one-year capstone individual/team project that provides the opportunity to pursue an idea from conception to design, then execute into a demonstrable project.

The Mechatronics Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. http://www.abet.org. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
