Expectations

Provide the participant the application knowledge in various mechatronic technologies that will be of great help in the improvement of the Mechatronics Engineering curriculum and course syllabi and other related engineering courses Provide the participant lecture materials and handson experiences of included topics that in return will be shared with students and incorporated in the course syllabus Give actual demonstrations of various mechatronics technologies that may be used to simulate the same exercises using our own mechatronics laboratory equipment in BSU, Philippines

The Challenge

To produce engineering graduates that are knowledgeable and competent enough to face the demands of many existing and emerging industries in our country (Philippines) where mechatronic systems and automation are parts of their daily existence and operations and therefore contribute to the countrys emerging economy and globalization.
