Despite so much progress in the field of automation technology, the world has to be ready for the further explosion of these technologies in the areas like manufacturing, healthcare, production, tracking, delivery, etc. Engineers need to further work on better communication between human to machine and machine to machine. Workforce training in these advanced areas has also changed to prepare them for the industry 4.0 model. The future industry is going to be highly digital and human beings will be more engaged in creative, tactical, and empathetic work directing automation technology to do routine tasks. Mechatronics has caused the same sea change in engineering. In many industries today, engineers have to work in cross-discipline; and in collaborative teams to ensure that the complex, highly integrated systems run smoothly. 


Mechatronics is the efficient and effective integration of mechanical systems, electronics, and intelligent control; aims to produce students who can design & develop smart machines, use their multidisciplinary skills to meet the growing demands of future industries.  

To understand the concept of mechatronics, one can simply think about today's automobiles. The average car today has between 25 and 50 central processing units (CPUs) that control mechanical functions. A driver support system (DSS) such as anti-lock breaks is designed with mechatronics; the electronic control system takes over the braking function when sensors recognize that one or more wheels are locking up. It has also allowed engineers to create smarter products, smaller products, and tiny & efficient products at the nanotech level.  

Keeping these in mind, two specializations are being offered with B.Tech. Mechatronics 

Mechanics & Signal Processing

Unlike in most fields of study, in signal processing, future jobs are not defined by or restricted to a single professional area. Signals are used to transmit information in nearly every imaginable field. They are used extensively in what will likely be a high-growth industry in years to come. Whatever industry interests you probably implements signal processing.

Academic Framework

The foundation of higher learning at UPES since its inception has been to explore and promote areas of learning that are innovative and future focused. This has led to constant evolution in facilitating creative and collaborative learning engagements for students through realignment of curriculum and exploration of virtual tools, and open-source courseware; thereby creating borderless learning and access to limitless information.

The new curriculum framework at UPES, ABLE (Academic Blueprint for Learning Excellence) is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. The learning is segmented into core subject studies, core specialism studies, minors/exploratory subjects, and signature and life skills learning. The latter three are offered by the newly-instituted School for Life.

SFL (School for Life) is an intrinsic part of the composite UPES student experience and facilitates learning and education that is a balance between what students want, and what is needed of them as future global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With courses designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills, a focus on a wide range of contemporary issues, and a mandatory social and professional internship experience that is unique, UPES believes in igniting to inspire the best version within an individual to better the world.
