Welcome to Mechatronics
The Mechatronics Engineering BE(Hons) Degree Programme is a new degree provided by the Mechanical Engineering and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments at the University of Canterbury. Mechatronics refers to the efficient and effective integration of mechanical systems and electronics. It is a blend of mechanics and electronics, and has come to mean the synergistic use of precision engineering, control theory, computer science, mathematics, and sensor technology to design enhanced or "smart" products, processes and systems.
Welcome from the Director of the Mechatronics Programme at UC, Distinguished Professor Geoff Chase
University of Canterbury honours mechatronics engineering graduate Angus Watson will use a Sir Peter Blake youth ambassador scholarship to live in the Antartic for six weeks later this year to collate energy data important to the future of the frozen continent.
