"Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering" is a state-of-the-art engineering specialty that has emerged and is developing as a result of the close integration of mechanics, electronics and computer technologies, modernization of control systems applied in the Aerospace Industry, Industry, Transport and other fields, as well as due to the use of Intelligent Devices and robots. "Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering" is a field of technology to ensure the creation and development of systems that can adapt to various conditions. Simply put, Mechatronics and Robotics consist of motor systems intended to generate mechanical energy, mechanical systems to transmit generated power, sensors to register changes, microelectronics to control the system as well as computer software to control the entire system.
Graduates of this specialty can work in areas where robotic and mechatronic systems are widely used: in the aerospace industry, automated production, electronics, energy, medical technology, as well as in other areas.
The sphere of professional activity of graduates in this specialty may also include research and technologies aimed at obtaining, registering and processing information about the environment, biological and technical objects, the development and application of mechatronic systems for monitoring the technical condition and parameters of objects.
In order to perfectly assimilate theoretical and practical knowledge by students of technical specialties, as well as the specialty "Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering" of the National Academy of Aviation (NAA), laboratories "Electronics and Electrical Engineering", "Electrical Measurements and Automation", "Digital Technology and Circuit Engineering" as well as "House of Student Creativity" were created, which are equipped with modern devices, models and instruments, and speciadlized classes equipped with visual aids and technical means were established.
