What is mechatronics and mechanical engineering?

Mechatronics engineering involves the planning, designing and development of systems that involve a combination of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering. It is a multifaceted field that has influenced other engineering disciplines to create electromechanical systems or devices. Mechanical engineering is an engineering discipline that applies design and physics to produce machines. Mechanical engineers focus on the design of a machine's structure or the configuration in which its parts operate. They engineer machinery with functions such as movement, control, protection, robotics, and more.
