The Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering (MRE) program at Queen’s is a direct-entry undergraduate program. Beginning in the first year, the MRE program addresses the need for a truly integrated approach to mechatronics and robotics across four years of study, incorporating elements of computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering, with key focus on automatic control, mechanics, electronics, intelligent systems, signal processing and telecommunications systems.

The program employs a multidisciplinary approach and recognizes the ever-increasing complexity of engineering systems and the societal need for skilled mechatronics engineers. A four-year sequence of experiential project-based design courses progressively build your foundational knowledge and culminate in a capstone design project that could lead to participation in an external design competition. 


Diversity and Inclusiveness

Engineering thrives on diversity. Thinking differently means embracing viewpoints, cultures, and perspectives from all angles. When teams are diverse, they have better potential to create more opportunities for everyone and find solutions to challenges.

At Queen’s MRE, we know that we cannot realize our greatest achievements without the ability for each of us to bring our complete selves without hesitation to every aspect of our work and learning. The ability to cultivate an environment that supports this is inherent to our core mission, vision, and ultimate success. We are committed to continuously challenge established norms that discriminate, exclude, or oppress individuals or groups throughout our program and Faculty.
