As a CSUCI mechatronics student, you’ll be at the forefront of a rapidly growing field of engineering that combines computer hardware, electronics and mechanical engineering. You’ll work with faculty who do research in mobile robotics, embedded systems and unmanned aerial vehicles. And you’ll learn how engineering is influenced and impacted by business, politics and other social forces. CSUCI mechatronics students are also in good company — we’re one of only three CSUs that offer degrees in mechatronics.

We offer:


You’ll also benefit from:

  • A small cohort of 24 students
  • CSUCI’s strategic location within the emerging “101 Tech Corridor,” which includes leaders in biopharmaceutical, manufacturing and engineering
  • Hands-on learning opportunities — both in class and through internships
  • Hands-on research experience with state-of-the-art resources

Your future

The U.S. Department of Labor projects that openings for mechatronics-related jobs across the country will outpace graduates 4:1 over the next decade. Your mechatronic degree will allow you to work effectively in all aspects of robotics, automated manufacturing, and the design of mechanical devices with embedded intelligence.

Top careers include:

  • Mechatronics engineer
  • Robotics engineer
  • Control Systems engineer
  • Electro-mechanical engineering
  • Software engineer
  • Manufacturing engineering

Your future income

While the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not provide specific salary information for mechatronics engineers, it does show that median annual wages for all specialized engineers not categorized was $92,680 as of May 2013. The middle 50% of these professionals earned between $68,610 and $117,930 yearly.
