Mechatronics Lab

The Mechatronics Lab provides 10 workstations for lab work and long-term projects. Each station provides a computer and space for multiple students, and 8 equipment racks provide an oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, and a power supply that can be shared between students or teams. Lockable storage cabinets provides space for additional tools and equipment for specific coursework or projects, and storage for student teams is also available. The lab also contains additional open workspace and storage for smaller components in the center of the room, and the remaining open space is suitable for project and vehicle testing. Finally, the Mechatronics Lab contains a dedicated computer for instructors, as well as a projector for use in teaching and presentations.

Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, controls engineering and computer engineering to develop systems and products that are efficient, versatile, and reliable. Courses within this interdisciplinary engineering field study the theory, design, and implementation of smart systems, as well as the components and mechanisms that make up these systems. Students learn to identify, understand, and work with devices such as sensors, actuators, network-based controllers, cameras, and microcontrollers, as well as Sun Microsystems Sun SPOT devices. More advanced courses involve long-term projects that utilize unmanned vehicles to illustrate concepts of systems integration and control.
