The term "Mechatronics", initially describes the integration of mechanical engineering and electronics. Over time, it evolved to include computer science and control engineering, reflecting the growing importance of software and automation in modern systems. Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that combines elements of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer Engineering, and control system engineering to design and create intelligent systems and machines that can perform tasks autonomously or semi-autonomously. Mechatronics and robotics engineering is a relatively new field, but it has grown rapidly in recent years. This is due to the increasing demand for electromechanical systems in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, and energy.

The field is continually evolving with advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning techniques, enabling robots to learn and adapt to new tasks. Collaborative robotics, where robots work alongside humans, is gaining momentum. Miniaturization and the development of micro-robotics are opening up new possibilities in medical and nanotechnology applications. Overall, mechatronics and robotics engineering is at the forefront of technological innovation, driving progress in automation, artificial intelligence, and the development of intelligent machines that can augment and enhance various aspects of our lives and industries.
