Mechatronics education: Meeting future need

David Russell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Of all the topics feverishly discussed in staff meetings, conferences and blogs, future educational effectiveness and relevance always seems to crop up. Professors, remembering their own education and struggles to attain their current status in academe bemoan the current lack of mathematics, the lack of student talent, and the drift away from hard design to a plug-and-play mentality. There are evident disjoints between Software-as-a-Sservice (SaaS), cloud computing, and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and mechatronic systems.
