The term "Mechatronics" was coined by Yasakawa Electric Company more than 40 years ago to refer to the use of electronics in mechanical control (i.e. 'mecha' from mechanical engineering and 'tronics' from electrical or electronics engineering). Today, it's generally defined as study concerned with the design, selection, analysis, and control of systems that combine mechanical elements with electronics components, including computers and or/microcontrollers. Mechatronics Laboratory under the Department of Mechanical Engineering is one among the important labs that serves academics as well as research. The lab caters the need to provide multi domain knowledge and system level integration which is expected to be the key role for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
