The BYU Mechatronics Club aims to help fill the need of a multi-disciplinary education that is needed in industry today. Our organization helps to empower students from a variety of backgrounds by providing them with a broad range of engineering and technical skills not offered by any single department; including an understanding of mechanical design, microcontrollers, programming, modeling, prototyping, etc. All are welcome to come build cool things with us!

What to Expect:

The club meets every other Thursday from 6:00 to 7:30pm. The first half hour of the meeting is spent doing tutorials on basic skills that is required for the project. The last hour is all hands on! Students will be in teams of 3 to 4 people and will build their own robot throughout the semester. There will be kits that students can purchase necessary to building the current project. The cost of the current project can be seen by following this link. If teams want to be more creative and order more parts, they are free to do so! At the end of the semester, the club will hold a competition for teams to showcase their robots and win prizes.

Students DO NOT need any prior experience with Mechatronics to join the club. While it is a challenging club, members of the club help learn from one another and students come out with a new set of skills that cannot be gained through any other club or class. Some of the skills that students will develop in the club include:

  • 3D CAD Modeling
  • Interfacing with Arduino
  • Programming (C++)
  • Design and Protoype
  • Electrical Circuits
  • Autonomous Systems
  • … and much more!
