Minor Program in Mechatronics

MINOR PROGRAM IN Mechatronics

Mechatronic systems, involving sensors, actuators and embedded computation, make up important parts of intelligent and robotic systems. Understanding and designing them contributes significantly to addressing the technological challenges of the present and foreseeable future. Minor Program in Mechatronics provides multidisciplinary knowledge across electronics, computer engineering, and software to interested students.

Conditions of Minor Program Completion

There are a total of 10 courses in this minor program; 8 of them are mandatory, and 2 of them are elective courses. Students must take mandatory courses from eight different fundamental areas of mechatronics. Some of these courses may be taken as a part of the students’ major program. In that case, those courses can be counted towards the Mechatronics minor program. The remaining courses, two electives, to meet the requirement for completing a minor program must be taken as elective courses.

Summary Table for Engineering Students

The following summary table is given as information for the engineering students; thus, it is not a binding table. It shows the courses already taken by each engineering program at METU NCC relating to the Mechatronics minor. The detailed program should be discussed with the academic advisor in the major program and the minor program coordinator.

The minimum requirement for completing a minor, based on respective METU directive, is the completion of 6 courses and 18 credits, with no less than 4 courses outside the major program curriculum.
