    What does this word mean?

    Mechatronic

    I've been looking at the potential courses I want to do for university, and Mechatronic Engineering stirred my interest. I dont know why though, seeing as I dont even know what the first word means. lol

    does anyone know what that word means, and if possible, what is involved in that course? thanks in advance.

    Looks like a jargon/media buzzword. At a guess I would say it means some course with a mixture of electronics, mechanics and electronically controlled mechanical things, steppers for example.

    Ask the course providers - they will be in a better position than anyone else to tell you what the syllabus covers.

    thought so... I thoroughly searched the uni's websites for the course description, but cant find anything in more detail than a brief outline of Engineering in general.
    Thanks anyway

    Yeah Adrian's explanation was pretty good. Think Robots.

    It's the study of giant robots that can change into cars and planes and such - no, wait, that's Megatron, sorry.
