Mechatronics Education Community Update

Hello Mechatronics Education Community,

We hope you all had a great summer! As you may have noticed, during the past few weeks, we worked on updating the main community website. We also worked on a new series of webinars focused on all aspects of mechatronics education. The first webinar is scheduled for September 29 - stay tuned, the details are coming soon!  

Other highlights from the past few weeks include:
New Forum discussions:

  • European progress on mechatronics education: are mechatronics programs at the European institutions more developed than those in North America? Add your comments to the discussion posted in the Mechatronics Curriculum category.
  • Check out the projects students from Purdue University are working on. Add examples of your projects to the Mechatronics Project Courses from Different Schools topic under the Student Projects category.

Add your comments to these and other discussions on the Forum. Or do you have a question? Start a new conversation!

Get more ideas for your mechatronics program, course or project - browse the database with more than 60 papers published in various journals and presented at conferences posted in the Repository's Featured folder.

If you would like to share your program's curriculum, project ideas, demo videos, research papers or other materials with the community, email the materials or send a download link to us at And tell us what other types of materials would you like to find in the repository.

Introducing new bloggers
Our community blog has welcomed new authors:

  • Travis Escoffery from National Instruments is enthusiastic about anything Mechatronics and Controls. His job takes him to universities and colleges around the world and he will share what he sees there with us. So let's start in Switzerland!
  • Dr. Ali Gürcan Özkil from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark shares the highlights from the recent workshop Mechatronics 4.0 in Engineering Education.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the Mechatronics Education Community often!
