This paper presents the strategy for developing the “Mechatronic Engineering Laboratory” at the authors’ university. The laboratory development was a principal part of an award for “Undergraduate Curriculum Development on Mechatronic Systems Engineering” by the Division of Undergraduate Education of the National Science Foundation (NSF). Major tasks involved in the award include the development and implementation of five new courses and a new laboratory. The purpose of the new laboratory is to support instruction of two of the five new courses: ME 105 Fundamentals of Mechatronic Systems Engineering and ME 190 Electromechanical Systems and Microprocessor Applications.
