Mechatronics is a branch of engineering that includes the combination of Electrical, control, mechanical, telecommunication and computer engineering. In other words we can say that this field is the mixture of all other fields of engineering. The word Mechatronics was oriented from Japan and Japanese made English word. This word was introduced by Mr. Tetsuro Mori who was a senior engineer in a Japanese company.
Basically it is a combination of the principles of electronics and computer engineering to make a new system that should be simple, reliable and economical. Many systems are generated in all over the world including Pakistan using this field. Industrial Robot which is an automatically operated robot is a major example of Mechatronics engineering. The course structure and curriculum of this field covers various other fields like
- Computer science (Software and hardware) and Engineering
- System and controls
- Opt mechanics
