In mechatronics, mechanical, electrical and computing elements are combined to form an integrated whole. A mechatronic engineer should be comfortable with the selection and integration of appropriate elements in a mechatronic system. A mechatronic engineer is also required to optimise the performance of a system by understanding its dynamics and applying feedback control. This course will equip the mechatronic student with the ingenuity, versatility and flexibility required for mechatronic practice and round off the formation of a mechatronics engineer. This key capstone course in the mechatronics major will draw from a number of engineering disciplines in order to solve a multi-faceted engineering problem/task.

This course draws together mechanical, electrical, software and interfacing aspects of a mechatronic system through a progressive sequence of design and control experiments. Students will create and analyse a series of hands-on design experiments.
