Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering

An Introduction

Mechatronics engineering has sparked new waves of technical advancement. There is no modern product except that contains both electronics and mechanical parts. Hardware used in factories. The simplest definition of mechatronics is a branch of engineering that integrates mechanics, electronics and control systems to design and build products and processes. It is the design of computer-controlled electromechanical systems and includes automation systems, robotics, neuro-artificial physiology, micro-electromechanical systems, and many more advanced stage technologies. Mechatronic engineering is one of the newest branches of engineering and has far-reaching applications for all sectors of society. To cope with this development, the branch of Mechatronics was established in 2001 in the Department of Control and Systems Engineering.


Educational Goals

• First: To prepare qualified engineers to understand and analyze the engineering problems they face in the field.

• Second: To develop students capable of professional interaction and effective communication with team members and able to work with multi-disciplinary teams.

• Third: Graduating engineers who are effective in their profession and able to continue their professional development.

• Fourth: To prepare highly qualified engineers capable of effective communication in society and the industrial sector.


Research Trends

The professors of the branch are interested in several research topics including:

1. Planning and controlling robot movement in various environments.

2. Medical Mechatronics applications.

3. Industrial automation applications.

4. Develop control of mechanical parts within pneumatic, hydraulic and electrical applications.

5. Applications of mechatronics in smart measurements.

6. Applications of mobile robot arms for civilian and military applications.
