The registration is now open for the next webinar in our Mechatronics Education Innovations Series.

Join us on Friday, March 23 at 1 pm EDT to learn about the Synergy between Mechatronics Engineering and Industrial Engineering Curricula in a Small Engineering Department: Past, Present, and Future. Dr. Nebojsa Jaksic, Professor at Colorado State University-Pueblo will share the story of two mechatronics engineering programs (B.S. and M.S) at CSU-Pueblo. As a founder of these programs, Dr. Jaksic will discuss the programs, the hiring principles, teaching/engagement principles, and the synergy with other engineering programs (interdepartmental and system-wise). He will also describe the labs supporting courses and the research in mechatronics performed at CSU-Pueblo. Finally, he will address the aspirations and role of CSU-Pueblo in the community. The webinar attendees will have a chance to take a glimpse at the labs, equipment, research trends, and future plans at his institution.
