Transversality is the key word of this Mechatronic Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino, which combines electronics, mechanics, electrical drives, automatic control and information technology to transfer skills to manage the design, engineering, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of mechatronic systems and devices, and the management of laboratories and plants. 


The curriculum in this Mechatronic Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino offers many opportunities for international mobility thanks to its double degree agreements with international universities.

The Mechatronic Engineer is a relatively recent professional figure, but it is very highly appreciated for its ability to find new solutions. 

Job opportunities are mainly in businesses related to automation, electronics, electromechanics and mechanics that design and manufacture mechanical, auto-vehicle, aeronautical and space, and robotic systems; demand also comes from manufacturing industries, which require the ability to combine skills in mechanics with those in electronics, information technology, electrical drives and automatic control. 

Educational objectives

A mechatronic system or device can be defined as one for the design of which you need a wealth of cross curricular knowledge, mainly, but not only, of electronics, mechanics, machinery and electrical drives, automatic control and information technology. 

Graduates in Mechatronic Engineering gain a scientific and technical knowledge of mechatronic systems that is "transversal" by nature as it crosses over electronics, mechanics, electrical drives, automatic control and information technology. 

The mechatronic engineer is therefore a technical professional with an extensive and broad-spectrum preparation that allows her/him to communicate with specialists in different fields, while working in the areas of design, engineering, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of mechatronic systems and equipment, and managing of laboratories and plants. 

Career opportunities

Mechatronic Engineers are relatively recent professional figures, but highly appreciated because they respond to the needs of a labour market that often requires knowhow to integrate electronics, mechanics, electrical drives, automatic controls and computers, from the very beginning of the design process. 

This approach enables engineers to identify new mechatronic solutions where a traditional approach would not be enough, or where performance would be lower.
