Global Mechatronics Teaching Workshop

Sponsored by Quanser and National Instruments

Mechatronics, as an area of study and methodology, is driving global mega trends in cyber-physical systems, autonomous vehicles, internet of things, industry 4.0, factory of the future and countless other areas. The ability for us to effectively prepare students for the complex and ambitious engineering systems that they will soon work on is the challenge that educators around the world are facing today.  Come join us in Austin, Texas for this Global Mechatronics Teaching Workshop and see how as a global community we can develop the best practices to address these challenges. This exclusive, invite-only session will bring together global leaders in education that are identifying the opportunities in mechatronics education and are setting the stage for how students will learn today and in the future.
