Mechatronics Technology Minor

Capital College, School of Science, Engineering and Technology (MCHTC)
Contact: Dr. Amit Banjerjee

Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary technical discipline that combines mechanical, electrical, electronics, control and computer engineering technology. The field deals with the design, development, control, and application of advanced electro-mechanical systems. Such systems will include sensors, actuators, microprocessors, controllers, software, computer, and mechanical hardware components. The purpose of the mechatronics technology minor is to provide undergraduate students an opportunity to take relevant courses that will sequentially build on their knowledge and understanding of mechatronic systems and to provide recognition to those who do so.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
