What is Mechatronics?

Mechatronics, as the word suggests is an amalgamation of two words "mechanics" and "electronics". Also known as mechatronics engineering, it is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering with emphasis on mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, control engineering, systems engineering, robotics engineering. Being an amalgamation of varied fields of engineering and works as a bridge between the methodologies of these engineering. It also serves as the foundation of machinery used in daily lives such as making televisions, fridges, smartphones, computers, etc and is widespread in industries such as software firms, technology, mining, manufacturing, defense, research, heavy engineering, consumer products, computer-aided design, and manufacturing.
