Certificate Program - Mechatronics

The Mechatronics Engineering Certificate is designed for engineers who already hold a bachelor’s degree. The certificate offers:

  • Advanced Technical Skills Training in Mechatronics – the intersection of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering – is a critical technology for most new product innovations
  • Courses in the Mechatronics Engineering Certificate program can be used to meet professional development and continuing education requirements for registered professional engineers
  • Two courses from the certificate can be applied towards a subsequent Master’s degree in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering

All course work can be completed online except for a one-week intensive lab experience.
