Good point, vimalkumarp. So who is doing the mechatronics? EEs or MEs? It's too early in hte world of mechatronics for there to be many mechatronics engineers.

Aerospace demands interdisciplinary knowlegde and mechatronics is one of the domains that integrate two important branches of knowledge. It is also important to appreciate the fact that many of the useful things that are now in daily use were invented for space exploration. So i am sure the development of mechatronic systems for aerospace and defence will find uses for the improving the quality of life of common man.

I think you're right, Ann. I expect the webinar will look at some of those differences.

This looks like a fascinating webinar topic, Rob. Sounds like a good idea to focus on mil/aero applications, since their requirements can be pretty different from factory automation's.
