CAO CODE: DC193 Understanding Mechatronic Engineering Essentially Mechatronic Engineering is about the moving parts that drive robots, electronics and machines. Consider what you use on a daily basis and how many moving parts are involved. Those parts have all been created by mechatronic engineers, and they ensure that our world keeps moving. Mecatronics is the science of combining mechanical engineering with electronic engineering. The DCU School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and the School of Electronic Engineering are the first in Ireland to offer such a degree course in Mechatronic Engineering. On this four year course you will focus primarily on aspects of developing novel products based on mechatronic principles. You will learn about electronic and mechanical systems, process control and instrumentation, and robotics and automated manufacturing.
