Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary subject which combines elements of computer, electrical and mechanical engineering. The objective of this CUD degree is to expand your working knowledge of engineering to include applied electronics and microcontroller programming. You will be introduced to issues that impact the design of mechatronic systems. An example of this is an industrial robot. If you have an interest in mechatronics and an experiential learning approach that provides hands-on experience in engineering problem solving, then this is the program for you.


Mechatronics students at CUD are exposed to a variety of disciplines, so you will be well-equipped to excel in a wide range of fields – including electrical and mechanical engineering – and have the potential to quickly reach management positions. The combined skills of the Mechatronics graduate are becoming increasingly valuable to employers in various fields.

Recognizing the need for diversification away from the oil and gas industry, the UAE has chosen to invest heavily in the creation of a knowledge economy based on technological advancement and innovation, including advancement in robotics technology. As a Mechatronics graduate, you will find yourself in demand across a range of established and developing fields of key importance to the UAE, from clean energy to manufacturing and healthcare.

Career opportunities

You will be thoroughly prepared to work in design and development in a number of areas including:

  • Medical robotics, systems and instrumentation
  • Defense robotics and systems
  • Manufacturing robotics and systems
  • Industrial and home robotics
  • Automotive robotics and systems
  • Distributed systems
  • Smart consumer products
