Mechatronics Engineering Technology (ROBO) is a branch of engineering technologies that involves the conception, design, manufacturing, and operation of integrated systems. This field overlaps with electronics, computer science, artificial intelligence, electrics and mechanics with application to diverse emerging fields including electromechanical systems, microelectromechanical systems, biomedical systems, mobile robotics, industrial robotics, automation, and many others. The program will prepare graduates to be technology leader; by engaging them in exciting mentor-based trainings and researchers that build advanced hands-on and technical skills that inspire innovation and that foster well-rounded life capabilities. The program will produce graduates ready to join advanced manufacturing industries and prepare them to the demands of the labor market in the area associated with the design, development, implementation, operation, management of mechatronics systems and its related fields.

Program Educational Objectives

After five years of graduation, the graduates of mechatronics engineering technology will demonstrate the following:

  1. Graduates will be able to combine knowledge with modern tools to solve real-world interdisciplinary engineering problems related to electromechanical systems and advanced manufacturing and robotics systems;
  2. Graduates will be able to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams;
  3. Graduates will be able to demonstrate continuous professional improvement including commitment to ethical responsibilities.

# See the Undergraduate Catalog,


  • Due to the cooperative education requirement, in order to complete this program in four years, it is necessary for the student to either enroll in co-op hours or coursework during the summer as well as during the academic year. If a student is not able to do so, this program will take five years to complete.

College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering General Information for all students in the College

In addition to completing all requirements, students are responsible for:


All students in the College are required to complete 2 co-ops, depending on your major. THIS IS A COURSE. It carries credit and is graded. It is full time (40 hrs/week) for the entire semester or part-time (20 hrs/week) for two consecutive semesters, paid and must be directly related to your major. All students MUST complete the Co-op Orientation.


Official University email accounts are required for all BGSU students. Official BGSU email addresses are in the form: BGSUusername@ At the time of admission or initial registration, all students will receive a email account. Students may anticipate that official University correspondence will be sent to this email account and they should access BGSU email on a regular and timely basis. All correspondence from Undergradute Student Services will be sent to your BGSU email.


The checksheet should be used in conjunction with the degree audit and advising to track progress toward degree completion.
