Mechatronics engineering use a combination of mechanical, electrical, computer and software skills to work with smart technologies, such as robots, automated guided systems and computer-integrated manufacturing equipment. The mechatronics engineering program is a 5-year, 164 credit hours program that enables the graduation of outstanding mechatronics engineers who are capable of competing nationally and regionally and well acquainted with the job market professionally and ethically. However, outstanding students have the chance of completing the program in 4 academic years. The Program equips students for their career by providing sufficient knowledge in several areas such as Mechatronics System Design, Electrical Circuits, Electrical Machines, Mechanical Design, Electromechanical Design, Control and Digital Control Systems, Software and Programming, Fluid System Control, Modeling and Simulation, and Measurements and Instrumentation. This knowledge is backed up by state-of-the art laboratories which enables the students to apply what they learn in the lecture practically in the laboratories. An example of these labs is AMATROL Mechatronics System Laboratory which is the only one in Egypt and the Middle East.
As more businesses advance their technologies and turns to sophisticated intelligent systems and robotics, mechatronics engineering will continue to grow in demand. Even manufacturing businesses considering a technology upgrade turn to mechatronics engineers in order to evaluate assembly line efficiency and costs. Graduates of this program can be offered several job opportunities such as Robotics engineer, Automation engineer, Control system design, Troubleshooting engineer, Electronics design engineer, Mechanical design engineer, Data scientist/big data analyst, Instrumentation engineer, and Software engineer.
