The mechatronics degree program at California University of Pennsylvania is a hands-on, technology-focused four-year program is the first of its kind in PASSHE, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

Students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math will understand the differences among these types of STEM-oriented technology programs.

What is mechatronics?

Mechatronics blends mechanical, electrical and computing technology with automated control and information systems.  

A mechatronics engineering technologist works with mechanical devices that incorporate mechanical, electrical, computer and software components, such as robots, automated guided systems, computer-integrated manufacturing or other “smart” devices. About mechatronics

Mechatronics at Cal U

The interdisciplinary curriculum for Cal U’s mechatronics engineering technology program includes instruction in mechanical engineering, electronic and electrical engineering, computer and software engineering, and control engineering.

Cal U’s mechatronics engineering technology program is based on a rich history of providing students with relevant, hands-on activities. Many courses include laboratory-based activities that allow students to work with components, systems and technology to reinforce concepts covered in class lectures.
