The National Science Foundation has awarded $49,957 to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in support of School of Engineering’s Nima Lotfi’s, PhD, work to advance mechatronics and robotics education by pioneering a more cohesive curricular approach across the nation. Lotfi is an assistant professor in the SOE’s Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. As a teacher-scholar in the SOE’s mechatronics and robotics engineering program, he has witnessed the area of study’s dynamic growth and notes the need for collaborative development of educational materials. Pictured: SIUE School of Engineering’s Nima Lotfi, PhD, (back) and his students Nedret Ramic (middle), a mechanical engineering graduate student, and Pratik Lamsal, a senior mechanical engineering major, assemble a large drone.
