Joint Bachelor of
Science in Engineering Degree with a Concentration in Mechatronics
Carolina State University and UNC Asheville
The University of North Carolina at Asheville and North Carolina State University offer a joint Bachelor
of Science in Engineering degree with a concentration in Mechatronics . The Mechatronics degree is offered entirely on the UNC
Asheville campus. Mechatronics is a unique,
multidisciplinary field of study which integrates electrical engineering,
mechanical engineering, computer and control engineering and information
technology. Mechatronics incorporates a contemporary
engineering design methodology which involves integrating microelectronics and
information technologies into mechanical and electromechanical systems.
degree program gives students the benefits of a strong foundation in the
liberal arts combined with rigorous studies in engineering disciplines and
allows students to complete an engineering degree while living and working in
the Asheville area. It is designed to be accessible to
students employed in local industries as well as to traditional students. Prospective
