Mechatronics & Robotics


Mechatronics integrates electronics, controls, and computers in the design of high performance systems. Most modern products – automobiles, household appliances, printers, hard-disk drives, surgical tools, to name a few – embody numerous ‘intelligent’ or ‘smart’ features enabled by mechatronics.

Mechatronic design strives to produce higher performance at lower costs, a critical goal in the tech sector in today’s economy. Our mechatronic systems research focuses on:

  • Micro and nanopositioning systems
  • Haptic devices
  • Bio-inspired compliant systems


  • Nanomanipulation and nano manufacturing
  • Robotics
  • Smart materials and structures
  • Structural health monitoring
  • Haptic interface and robotics
  • Production and application of nanostructured materials
  • Kinematics and synthesis of mechanisms
  • Human-robot interactions
  • Networked multi-agent systems
