The workshop is motivated by the tremendous, dynamic growth in Mechatronics and Robotics. To address the need for highly educated, multi-disciplinary professionals, many universities and colleges have introduced courses, minors, and degree programs; however, these efforts lack cohesion. Now is the time to unify and standardize educational material to make MRE education more widely available and easier to adopt.
The objectives of this workshop are to bring together industry and academic professionals in Mechatronics and Robotics, share experiences, and initiate efforts towards defining the field. We aim to encourage and facilitate the wide adoption of Mechatronics and Robotics degree programs. Workshop participants will learn about recent successes in offering these degrees, help influence the future of the field, and contribute to the growing Mechatronics and Robotics education community.
This workshop will benefit a wide range of DSCC participants including educators teaching mechatronics, robotics, dynamics and control courses, PhD students seeking academic careers in mechatronics and robotics, and industry professionals desiring to shape the future workforce.
We anticipate limited funding for workshop participants. Details will be announced when they become available.
