Joe’s Answer

Hi Andreas, as others have said Mechatronics is a combination of different types of Engineering;
You would not necessesarily need to study Mechatronics itself at a University but you would probably need a degree in Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Robotics from a third level college or university together with some experience in order to move into Mechatronics later if you wanted to go that way - this approach would give you more flexibility if you changed your mind later.
Good luck

Joveli Stesha’s Answer

I have a friend who's a Mechatronics engineer, and they graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree. Within the degree, it was required to take a Mechatronics class and they fell in love.

I suggest looking at Electrical or Mechanical engineering colleges, and find the required classes to see if the college offers mechatronics classes.

The college they went to was San Jose State University.

Ana’s Answer

Mechatronics is a combination of electronics and mechanical so you could do electronic engineering and specialize in robotics or mechatronics.
