Master’s Degree in Mechatronics: The Oakland University Advantage

Because we’re located in Southeast Michigan, Oakland University’s mechatronics program offers unique access to industry leaders, on campus and off. You’ll have opportunities to learn from and build relationships with mechatronics pioneers in autonomous vehicles, robotics, manufacturing, biomedical technology and other sectors. Few programs nationwide provide comparable connections to the people and organizations who are driving innovation in mechatronics technology.

Other key benefits of the Mechatronic Systems Engineering program at Oakland University include:

  • Practical, hands-on training. You’ll acquire marketable skills and address real-world challenges in automotive mechatronics, robotics, control systems, embedded systems and other mechatronics subdisciplines. The combination of academic instruction and first-hand experience helps you stand out in the job market and contribute immediately in the workplace. 
  • Cutting-edge facilities. Oakland’s School of Engineering and Computer Science maintains more than a dozen world-class labs where you can work with the same tools and technologies you’ll use in your mechatronics career. The Automotive Mechatronics Laboratory, Center for Robotics and Advanced Automation, Intelligent Ground Vehicle Laboratory and OU/Chrysler Controls and Robotics Laboratory are of particular interest to mechatronics graduate students.
  • Superior faculty. You’ll learn from active researchers and industry veterans who are developing new uses and capacities for mechatronics technology. Oakland’s mechatronics faculty include high-profile investigators in guidance systems, power-train control, vehicle dynamics and kinematics, signal conditioning, embedded control and other emerging areas of mechatronics.
  • Tight-knit community. With small classes and attentive professors, our mechatronics program promotes strong one-on-one relationships between students and faculty. We have a collaborative environment in which students offer mutual support and contribute to each other’s success.
  • Flexibility and convenience. We designed our mechatronics degree for working professionals who need to balance graduate school with job responsibilities. Courses are scheduled for evenings and Saturdays, with online options in some cases.
