Mechatronics

The Importance of Mechatronics:

There have been rapid changes and improvements in the fields of electronics, computer and control systems over the last years. As a result of this, computer controlled systems have been in increase in almost every field. The number of only mechanically operating systems is very few. The applications of artificial intelligence techniques have been put into use in design, production and maintenance. Therefore, the design, production and maintenance of advanced products are no longer a single subject. It has become a must to use mechanics, electrics and electronics, hydraulics and pneumatic and computer technologies together. This made Mechatronics emerge as a new discipline. What Mechatronics covers ranges from home technologies to advanced medical devices and from computer controlled benches to robots. The application fields of Mechatronics can be illustrated as follows:

  • Control Systems (position, level, pressure and heat control systems…)
  • Robots (transport and welding robots)
  • Industrial Automation (barcode systems and production belts)
  • Building Automation (security systems, automatic air conditioning and automatic door systems)
  • Home appliances (washing machines and dish washers)
  • Automotive (air bag, antilock braking system)
  • Defense Industry (mine detection robots, automatically guided vehicles)
  • Medical Applications (magnetic resonance, arthroscopic devices, ultrasonic probes etc.)
  • Aeronautical Engineering (automatic pilots, unmanned aerial vehicles)
  • Image and Sound Processing (automatic focusing devices, sound-operated devices)
  • Production (Computerized Numerical Control -CNC, Numerical Control -NC)
  • Laser optical systems (barcode)
  • Intelligent measuring devices (calibration devices, testing and measuring sensors.

In parallel with the rapid advances in the field, the need for well-qualified employees has been on the increase. The program aims at teaching Mechatronics systems theoretically and practically to meet the need for well-qualified employees.
