Mechatronics represents a unifying interdisciplinary and intelligent Engineering Science paradigm that features an interdisciplinary knowledge area and interactions in terms of ways of work and thinking, practical experiences, and theoretical knowledge. Mechatronics Engineering is about mastering a multitude of disciplines, technologies, and their interaction, whereas Mechatronics Science is about invention and development of new theories, models, concepts, and tools in response to new needs evolving from interacting scientific disciplines. Mechatronics thinkers will play a major role in closing the gap between different disciplines. Mechatronics Engineering Education focuses to produce engineers who can work in a high-technology environment, emphasize real-world hands-on experience, and engage challenging problems and complex tasks with initiative, innovation, and enthusiasm.
