Mechatronics is the convergence of mechanical, electronics, computer, and automation engineerings, for the design, integration and implementation of advanced systems. Examples are robots (manipulator arms, land vehicles, air and water, humanoids, ...), automatic processes, smart appliances, electronic medical equipment, etc.

The Mechatronics Engineering program was born as a natural response to the demands imposed by the current technology, which requires multidisciplinary knowledge. It was established in the Faculty of Engineering UASLP in 2007 and has grown rapidly. This program has one of the highest demands and criteria for selecting applicants are rigorous. The faculty that supports this program includes teachers and faculty researchers with affiliation to the National System of Researchers (SNI). They have extensive and proven experience in both teaching and industrial environment in the various disciplines included in Mechatronics.e robots (manipulator arms, land vehicles, air and water, humanoids ...), automatic processes, smart appliances, electronic medical equipment, etc.
