About the Program


Integrating the parts is much better than just putting them together. Mechatronics engineering emerges from the need to combine mechanics, electronics and informatics to obtain products, processes and systems that change our reality. 

Mechatronics engineering creates the most sophisticated machines, which involve robotics for their design, manufacturing and control, and that have a high level of production and demand worldwide.
A competitive country needs multidisciplinary professionals to master technology to conceive intelligent, simple and versatile devices that improve people’s quality of life.

That is why at UPC we educate you as experts in planning, analyzing, designing, building, operating and maintaining ecoefficient devices that solve engineering problems and translate into a better quality of life for more people.

Would you like to invent a mini-robot that moves through debris to save lives? Would it not be fascinating to completely automatize an industrial plant or a factory?

Without a doubt, your line of work is vast.

To educate upstanding and innovative leader engineers with a global vision in order to generate value through the design and execution of mechatronics engineering projects that contribute to transforming Peru.
