About

The Master of Science in Mechatronics degree program at Oakland University is designed to prepare students for a multi-disciplinary engineering specialty needed in its ever-growing applications in consumer products, manufacturing, transportation systems, security systems, defense systems, aerospace, sports engineering, biomedical systems, and automotive systems. 

Overview

It is designed for students with a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, or robotics who want to strive for a balance of theory and hardware of the electrical and mechanical engineering aspects of robotics systems. A degree in other fields may be acceptable but remedial coursework may be required to overcome deficiencies. It is offered by the ECE and ME departments.

Learning outcomes

All accepted applicants, in consultation with their assigned faculty program adviser, must develop a plan of study that details specific courses the students will use to satisfy their degree requirements. The plan of study must be approved by the faculty program adviser and submitted by the student to Graduate Study and Lifelong Learning.

Master’s and graduate Mechatronics certificate students must submit a department-approved plan of study by the end of their first semester of graduate coursework. Doctoral students must submit an approved plan of study prior to completion of the first year of coursework.

Note: Credit granted for successful completion of a course toward an undergraduate degree program may not be repeated for a graduate degree. If a substitution is approved, the minimum number of program-approved graduate credits will be required. A Petition of Exception - OU Course Waiver/ Substitution requesting the substitution must be approved.

Course approval

Approval by the master’s degree adviser and the department chair is required for independent study, engineering projects, master’s thesis or special topics courses that are used toward the degree. In addition, approval of the faculty administering the independent study, advising the thesis or project or teaching the special topics course must be obtained before registering for these credits.

Course credit

Normally, graduate credit is awarded only for courses numbered 500 or higher. However, up to 4 credits of Oakland University senior-level (400-499) courses in the major can be approved for graduate credit by the student’s adviser. With the added approval of the graduate committee of the school, an additional 4 credits of senior-level courses can also be counted toward the required 32 credits. Course credit will not be awarded for work applied toward another degree. Students who have received credit for the 400-level version of a cross-listed senior/graduate course cannot receive credit toward a graduate degree for the 500-level version of that course.
