Why Mechatronic Systems Engineering at Lawrence Tech?
Lawrence Technological University's Master of Science in Mechatronic Systems Engineering is one of just a few graduate programs in the United States, and provides the advanced skills students need to succeed in the rapidly changing world of engineering. Whether you are just beginning your career or are an experienced practicing professional, the mechatronic systems engineering program at Lawrence Tech can prepare you for an exciting future in a variety of technical and research fields.
Designed for busy students, all classes are conveniently scheduled in the evenings. In keeping with the University's motto of theory and practice, you will participate in real-world projects throughout your studies. A new Mechatronic Systems Laboratory, equipped with high-tech sensors and actuators,
hydraulic and pneumatic test stands with different types of controllers, and computer software, as well as the unique 4 x 4 vehicle chassis dynamometer, exposes you to the theory and principles of mechatronic systems engineering through hands-on applications and professional advanced training for industry. You will have the opportunity to participate in international research collaboration efforts with universities and professional societies, as well as applied research projects with industry and research organizations.
The program's curriculum is particularly strong in areas that form the basis of mechatronics, including analytical and adaptive. dynamics, math modeling and
optimization, mechanical design of mechatronic systems and their adaptive and intelligent control, and robotics design and control. Building on these strengths, the MS in Mechatronic Systems Engineering emphasizes autonomous and conventional vehicle mechatronic systems engineering and industrial robotics engineering - providing a skill set much in demand.
Lawrence Tech's MS in Mechatronic Systems Engineering consists of 30 credit hours - eight core courses and two elective courses or a thesis - covering all aspects of the synergistic design of mechatronic systems.
