The interdisciplinary area of mechatronics is fast integrating into the curricula of traditional mechanical engineering courses world over. Different approaches and strategies adopted by educational institutions. In a global context, Mechatronics is often Mechanical Engineers and in Sri Lanka seen as the future career for of industrialization, the industry opportunities for engineers with a strong electro-mechanical background needs no speculation. However, in the local context there are implementation of a Mechatronics programme. even severe resource constraints to successful This paper examines the issues involved in relation to global trends and local constraints and it attempts to identify possible avenues for development. The current project-based learning approach used in the authors’ department to introduce mechatronics is presented covering some specific case studies involving different sectors of industry.
