A mechatronics course has been recently introduced as a 4th year elective at the University of Saskatchewan Department of Mechanical Engineering. The necessity and the rational for this training are reviewed. A curriculum for the course is proposed supported by student feedback following its first year of introduction. The curriculum and the structure of the course is such that training in mechatronics may be provided through an elective course. Notwithstanding, the merits of establishing a degree in mechatronics are discussed given the strong industrial demand for this topic.
