Mechatronics is a design process and Mechatronics Engineering multidisciplinary engineering branch which integrates the classical fields of mechanical, electrical engineering, mathematics, and computer science/information technology. Mechatronics is centered on mechanics, electronics, computing, control engineering, molecular engineering (from nanochemistry and biology) and optical engineering which, combined, make possible the generation of simpler, more economical, reliable and versatile systems. Its application areas range from power systems to transportation to optical telecommunications to biomedical engineering. An industrial robot is a prime example of a mechatronics system as it includes aspects of electronics, mechanics, and computing to do its day-to-day jobs. A mechatronics engineer unites the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to generate a simpler, more economical and reliable system. The term was coined from mechanics and electronics.
