**Mechatronics_ Electronic control systems in mechanical and electrical engineering pdf.**

**Mechatronics: Electronic control systems in mechanical and electrical engineering 3rd edition by W. Bolton. **

The integration of **electronic engineering, electrical engineering, computer technology, and control engineering with mechanical engineering** is increasingly forming a crucial part in the design, manufacture, and maintenance of a wide range of engineering products and processes. A consequence of this is the need for engineers and technicians to adopt an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to engineering The term **mechatronics** is used to describe this integrated approach. A consequence of this approach is that engineers and technicians need skills and knowledge that are not confined to a single subject area. They need to be capable of operating and communicating across a range of engineering disciplines and linking with those having more specialised skills. This book is an attempt to provide a basic background to mechatronics and provide links through to more specialised skills.

The overall aim of the book is to give comprehensive coverage of mechatronics which can be used with courses for both technicians and undergraduates in engineering, and hence, to help the reader

1. Acquire a mix of skills in mechanical engineering electronics and computing which is necessary if he/she is to be able to comprehend and design mechatronic systems.

2. Become capable of operating and communicating across the range of engineering disciplines necessary in mechatronics.
