Course Objective Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary field, and students from different disciplines are accepted. This course aimes to give the basic knowledge about mechatronic to graduate studies who come from different disciplines. In this context, the students is helped to make practical studies about mechatronic in the begining level and so we hope that they are easily adapted to mechatronic sector.
Course Content Mechatronics and its basic components, system, modeling, measurement systems, sensors, actuators, control system and elements of the control system, data acquisition, signal processing, system design and new developments in mechatronics and general information about its applications
