For example, using a robot in a manufacturing process exposes the need explained above. With the help of the Mechatronics Engineering Ph.D. Program from Istanbul Okan University this need will be met by educating expert engineers who will use these advanced technological products effectively.      

Key facts

Besides the transfer of the results of scientific research-development without any delay, new development principles, new perception and information technologies, new control and process philosophies that maintain the success of the system at a very high level form the most important challenge of our time.   The design, implementation and operation of mechatronics systems permit the use of all types of new concepts and applications in a flexible manner because these systems are based more on software than hardware.
