[Retrieved June 01, 2009]

Presented by Martin Grimheden and Mats Hanson of the Mechatronics Lab, Department of Machine Design, Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm, Sweden, at the 1st Baltic Sea Workshop on Education in Mechatronics, Kiel, Germany, on September 20-22, 2001, this article argues for a step towards the question of identity and legitimacy of an approach to establish Mechatronics as an academic discipline, program or curricula.

Who owns Mechatronics
[Retrieved June 01, 2009]

This is an article written by Alan S. Brown, Associate Editor of Mechanical Engineering magazine stating that mechanical, electrical, control, and software engineers all play a vital role in building electromechanical systems. He raised the following questions: who will play the lead role in developing those Mechatronics systems? Will it be the mechanical engineers, who design the moving parts? Will it be electrical engineers, whose chips and sensors are the heart of control? Will companies rely on software engineers, who give Mechatronic devices their character? Or will it be engineers of some as-yet-undefined description? Who will own Mechatronics? But who will lead?
