Degree



DEGREE INFORMATION

MECHATRONICS CONCENTRATION

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (BSECE) – Mechatronics Concentration is a new degree at LeTourneau University involving a curriculum of 127 semester hours. This new degree offers students exposure to interdisciplinary areas of engineering combining mechanical, electrical, computer, and control systems. Mechatronics engineers work with systems that have mechanical and electrical components, sensors, and actuators.

The concentration Mechatronics Engineering is a new program and will be seeking ABET accreditation following the first graduating class of BSECE students in 2021.  Contact the School of Electrical Engineering for more information about this new program.


Project Highlights

 


Power Engineering Lab

In this lab you will gain practical experience with the theory you learn in the classroom. You will learn how to take electrical energy and turn it into mechanical energy and mechanical energy and turn it into electrical energy. We at LeTourneau University, believe in a hands-on approach. The theory learned in the classroom is applied in lab assignments and design projects. Senior design projects, such as BADGER below, provide additional practical experience. Shown here is a video of the Power Engineering Lab. The Electrical Power Engineering class is one of the approved electives of the Mechatronics concentration.


BADGER Project

The BADGER Project was produced by a senior design team. It's an autonomous robot designed to patrol golf courses, recognize pest geese, and chase them away.
