Today, with the rapid improvement of technology in the sectors of machinery, electronics, computer hardware, and computer software, alongside the development of industrial automation, we have started to use intelligent machines and robots in the industry, leading to a need for a new engineering field that can find a place in all stages of the development of these new technologies. A mechatronic product consists of motor systems used for generating mechanical power, transferring power, sensors for sensing changes, microprocessor for controlling the system, and computer programs that control the entire system or machine in a central or distributed structure. Mechatronics engineering is a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical-electronics engineering and computer engineering in order to design and manufacture the above mentioned technologies. The Mechatronics Engineering Program trains qualified engineers who can utilize time, resources, and work power effectively and make technological designs by using current technology and engineering productivity in the most productive way while considering environmental factors.
Education and training activities in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering are offered in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and in classrooms with all the up-to-date technological facilities. There are eight faculty members who have completed postgraduate degrees in qualified and well-known universities. Mechatronics engineering students also take courses from the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering as well as the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Thus, our courses are carried out in a multi-disciplinary manner and the collaboration of students from different disciplines. The faculty is composed of experienced academics who continue their scientific studies in their own fields of expertise by supervising theses for postgraduate students. The program is taught in English and due to this, our students will be able to easily follow references written in English and improve themselves while working on their courses and practicing their profession throughout life.
Mechatronics engineering has a wide range of applications and working areas. It is a necessity for the human race to get help from machines to do challenging tasks, requiring fine work and detailed in a way that is beyond human sensitivity, or too dangerous. So, mechatronic engineers play a major role in designing and manufacturing these machines. Mechatronics engineering practices include: health robots, agricultural robots, the automotive industry, micro electromechanical systems (MEMS), flying robots, robot vision, industrial automation, smart weapons and weapons systems, micro robots, mobile robots, and industrial robots. Industrial companies operating in these fields throughout the world need qualified engineers and Cyprus International University Mechatronics Engineering Program provides engineers with the qualifications needed by these companies.
