Universidad Panamericana | Faculty of Engineering Academic Offering Bachelor's Degree in Mechatronics Engineering Guadalajara

Mechatronics Engineering

Our Mechatronics Engineering degree was born out of a need in industry for engineers who could cover a greater understanding of the application of engineering in different areas. We have four fundamental pillars in the career:


  • Mechanics
  • Electronics
  • Programming
  • Control


This enhances the capacity of our engineers with decision-making and problem-solving skills through creative and innovative ideas. Also, by studying at Universidad Panamericana our students obtain leadership tools, critical, analytical and systematic thinking, excelling in both national and international multidisciplinary contexts. Our ethical and human vision, our engineers make decisions that have a positive impact on society.


In Mechatronics Engineering, we have the following advantages:


  • 90% of our engineers finish their studies working in an international company or starting their own business.
  • Our teaching staff is made up of specialists with PhDs in our four pillars
  • From the first semester of the course, our engineers participate in laboratories in order to balance theory and practice.
  • Our students can choose four extracurricular projects, participating in international competitions in the following areas:
    • Robotics
    • Automotive
    • Aeronautics

"Studying at Universidad Panamericana allowed me to develop and achieve my goals, thanks to the motivation of my professors. Currently, I am finishing my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. All this would have been impossible without Universidad Panamericana".

Minerva Martín del Campo, class of 2009, Guadalajara campus. 

"Studying Mechatronics Engineering gave me the skills, confidence and knowledge to overcome any obstacles I face in my professional life".

Héctor Kelly, class of 2014, Guadalajara campus. 

"Thanks to the foundation I gained in Mechatronics Engineering, I was able to embark on a career as a research professor in order to meet social needs. In addition, I was able to study for my master's degree in Data Science Engineering.

Diego de la Cruz, class of 2017, Guadalajara campus.

"Thanks to Universidad Panamericana I was able to develop professionally and undertake in different industries. I also achieved a mental structure to seek solutions to the obstacles that come my way, with the vision of the University, I always seek to positively impact society."

Elías González, class of 2009-2014, Guadalajara campus.
