BS in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering

With advances in technology and unprecedented worker shortages, industries are increasingly relying on robotic applications. Historically, separate individuals with expertise in computer engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering designed machines, but as manufacturers move toward more technologically driven automated systems, there is a growing demand for professionals with experience in all these areas. The Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering at Trine University will equip you to develop automated systems and smart solutions to solve tomorrow’s industry challenges.

Courses in the Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering will give you a foundation in the theory of mechatronics and robots engineering, enhanced through laboratory experimentation and design. You will graduate with not only a wealth of engineering knowledge, but the hands-on experience and skills employers desire.

Program Objectives

The Mechatronics and Robotics engineering program meets the needs of students, alumni, employers, and the faculty by assuring that a few years after graduation:

  • Our graduates are prepared to apply principles of mechanical and electrical engineering to the practice of engineering at the professional level to robotics, mechatronics and related industries; and
  • Our graduates engage in lifelong learning and serve their professions and community.


 The Mechatronics and Robotics engineering program assures that graduates will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Career paths

Your Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering will allow you to pursue a variety of graduate studies, engineering careers and continuing education. Mechatronics and robotics engineers can work in industry, laboratories or engineering offices, and can be involved with research in emerging fields such as bioengineering and nanotechnology.

About this institute

Trine University

Trine University, established in 1884 as a university to educate and nurture future professors and teachers, has evolved over time into an institute of inculcating and imparting  knowledge and learning. Through Trine’s small class size of 17:1, invaluable focus and...

Why study at Trine University

Trine's philosophy of teaching has always been to put the student first. The small class sizes of 17:1, be it a 100-level or a 400-level course, are intended to provide individual attention to students and allow our experienced professors to understand students and help bring their potential out. The individual, focused attention also allows students to clear their doubts in a one-on-one session or be able to take part in study groups that happen in the evening for students to learn in a holistic, enriching environment. The state-of-the-art facilities at the university, whether in athletics, engineering, business and management or arts and sciences, enable Trine students to gain real-world experience and get a leg up in the field.

Education at Trine is focused at producing graduates whose skills are tailored to industry, allowing students to embark upon successful career paths. Learning to operate different kinds of manufacturing equipment or processes, making your own video game, learning when to disinvest from a company — all these learnings and experiences are delivered in a way to maximize learning and retention.

As an incentive for undergraduate students to join, Trine offers on-campus jobs, scholarships, and financial aid packages of different calibers. With the efforts of both well-connected professors and the Career Center, motivated and high-performing undergraduate students are able to participate in internships and co-ops under the curricular practical training (CPT) program after their first academic year. Trine’s hybrid graduate classes are a unique blend of seated and virtual classes that allow those students to pursue industrial experience while taking classes. CPT allows for undergraduate and graduate students to have US work experience during their degree program.

With an employment rate of more than 99% within six months of graduation over the past seven years, Trine University prepares you for the workforce. Part of the reason for this is that Trine is located in the industrially rich region of the Tri-State area. With so many different companies in the region, this is a melting pot of opportunity, international and domestic, for Trine University students. Trine is also just 40 minutes away from Fort Wayne, the second largest city in Indiana. Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Indianapolis are just a three-hour drive away from the university, offering convenient excursions for food, culture, transportation and leisure. Such an environment makes Angola, Indiana, a very calm and peaceful city, devoid of most distractions from studies while still allowing students to kick back and relax over the weekends.
