With more mechatronics degrees and programs being offered every year, MechatronicsZone is improving its academic coverage.
As an optimist and an idealist, I have been searching for good news as some companies have been announcing their fourth-quarter financial results. I have been looking for bright spots in what is an admittedly bleak landscape, even for an optimist.
Take a look at some insights from Aberdeen Group's report, "Engineering Evolved: Getting Mechatronics Performance Right The First Time."

Stefan Wolpert is pursuing his Bachelors of Science in electrical and computer engineering at Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA. He plans to focus on electrical hardware and software integration at Olin College, and may pursue a future graduate degree in systems engineering. He interned in the engineering department at Lehigh Cement and prior to that ran a local computer repair business. He has always had a mechanical knack, but has been drawn into the electrical world. Stefan is an avid skier and pianist. More
