The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IIM) of the UACJ offers the Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics.


It is important that you know the following:


·Thesis activities revolve around the research projects currently running. Click here to know them.


·Among the activities that you will carry out in case of entering as a thesis student and depending on your preparation and the project to which you are assigned, are:


° Reading and preparation of article summaries.

° Participation in a course as a listener.

°Technical support activities in computer equipment and administrative support in projects.

° Conducting experiments of different kinds.

° Design and programming of some software routines.


The area of ​​signal processing, control and artificial neural networks belongs to the research group "Mechatronics" and has several active projects. To work successfully in signal processing, control and artificial neural networks requires very good bases in programming, ability to write well in English and Spanish, ability to read well in English and Spanish, good mathematical foundation and a good attitude to efficiently develop teamwork and independently. Consult the Publications and Research Projects sections of Dr. Rodriguez Jorge to obtain more detailed information about the current projects. If you are interested in learning more about the projects or obtain a graduate degree working in this area, please write an email to Dr. Ricardo Rodríguez Jorge or visit my office at the Institute of Engineering and Technology.


In case of entering as a thesis student, in the research activities you will perform you will use the following operating systems, software and programming languages:


       ° Linux

       ° Python
