Robotics and Mechatronic Systems Engineering with a Concentration in Electrical Engineering
Welcome to the Robotics and Mechatronic Systems Engineering with a Concentration in Electrical Engineering, where our focus is on you, the student.
What is Robotics and Mechatronic Systems Engineering with a Concentration in Electrical Engineering?
Robotics and Mechatronic Systems Engineering with a Concentration in Electrical Engineering is an undergraduate degree program focused on the fundamentals to design "intelligent" systems requiring sensing, actuation and computation to achieve product quality and performance.
Intelligent systems are found in robots, automobiles, airplanes, defense systems and assistive devices.
The goal of the program is to train you to to be innovative in this multidisciplinary world.
Benefits of a Detroit Mercy education
Want to know what sets Detroit Mercy apart from other programs?
Our small class sizes mean that you’ll receive personalized attention from your professors, leaders in the electrical and computer engineering fields.
Additionally, you’ll get a leg up on key program elements because we introduce concepts traditionally considered advanced much earlier on in the education process.
See this in action as you participate in hands-on projects that integrate theory and application, beginning in your first year and culminating in your senior capstone design sequence.
With industry and academia leaders are actively engaged with the program through the Program Development Advisory Committee and Department Advisory Board, you will be well-prepared for an exciting career.
Our students find great jobs with major corporations around the country and abroad. In fact, 100 percent of our 2014 graduates found employment or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation.
Why are they so successful? In large part because they graduate with real industry experience — more than a year of it, due to the required three semesters of co-op.
What makes the co-op experience even better? Students earn an average of $27,000 doing it.
Our Jesuit and Mercy religious sponsors are known for providing students a great, well-rounded education with an emphasis on leadership and service. At Detroit Mercy, we don’t just teach engineering; we create community leaders.
As a student, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the field, but also something more: The opportunity and know-how to affect change in the world around you.
Great American City
We’re proud to call Detroit home! Did you know that it’s home to a full three percent of the nation’s engineering and architecture jobs? That’s the most in the Midwest and the second most in the country — think of the opportunities that offers when it comes to co-op placements and careers.
Your on-campus opportunities are plentiful, too. Meet friends with similar interests as a member of The Institution of Electronics and Electrical Engineers (IEEE), the largest student organization in the world.
