Department of Mechatronics Engineering


Just as electronics and computers have revolutionized our lives in a number of ways, so have they revolutionized mechanical and production systems in industries. With the help of electronic instrumentation and microprocessor-based control, these systems are today achieving higher and higher standards of precision, accuracy repeatability. Also, newer types of machines have been developed in which electronic processes and control play a key role. Application of CAD, CAM, Automation and Robotics have come to play a very significant role in industries of today, and the applications are growing at a very fast rate.

To train engineers who can design and work with such systems, the basic principles of mechanical engineering, electronics, control and computer soft wares must be brought together. The degree programme in Mechatronics aims to achieve precisely this. The word 'Mechatronics' was coined by the Japanese, more than 15 years ago, since they were the first to recognize the need. Today, Mechatronics programmes leading to undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees are running in major universities of the industrialized countries. In India, our college was the first to recognize this industrial need and we started a full-fledged four-year undergraduate programme in Mechatronics in 1998 with an annual intake of 40 students which has since been raised to 60. Department started postgraduate course, ME in Mechatronics Engineering from year 2012. Department of Mechatronics Engineering was initially affiliated to Sardar Patel University, Vallabh Vidyanagar till 2007, later to Gujarat Technological University (GTU), Ahmedabad (2008-2020). From academic year 2020-21 the GCET is now one of the constituent colleges under CVM University.

The department aims to educate students in global standards by way of imparting the responsible, worthy, and exploratory approach, & thereby enabling them to face Industrial challenges in the ever-changing technical era by providing platform to learn and execute the multidisciplinary subjects with focus on Design, Control and Automation aspects.
