    I don't mean to be rude - it's just something I achieve quite naturally - but if you can't spell bachelor's correctly; if you can't place an apostrophe in the appropriate place; if you can invent words like mechatorincs[ ], then what institution ever decided you were worthy of a B.Sc., let alone something more advanced?

    The options available to you would depend upon the a) the quality and relevance of your first degree; b) the quality and character of the second degree. You have not provided enough information for me to attempt a meaningful guess.

    Good luck.

    Whilst I agree entirely with Ophiolite's sentiments, and would thoroughly recommend you take note of them, I'd rather have seen it phrased a little differently.

    I can remember a young student under my direction who, in a report opened it with a 'summery' - He'll never make that mistake again.

    Communication, nay excellent communication, in science is paramount - it indicates precision, attention to detail - those qualities that are, science.

    Your original post is of the quality of a text message and could easily pass as that from a ten year old, not a budding physicist.

    The it wouldn't have had the shock value. My intent is not to win friends, but to influence people.

    I did wonder whether you had considered (from his ID) that his first language might not be english, since I have seen you [I believe] ask this question in the past.

    If you examine the syntax and grammar of his sentences you find they are perfect. It is his typography that is Zelos like in its poor quality. If English is his (her) second language he is already very capable in it. What he lacks is discipline in applying those skills. That, in my books is laziness and in the context of the forum is rudeness: hence my response.

    Cheez, im so sorry for making such a huge spelling and a grammatical mistake on the internet…
    F*** man …neither do I mean to be rude but I wasn’t writing an essay for an English teacher to read…..just incase if u haven’t noticed, I would like to remind u that this is the internet…. Dude that was pretty childish to point out some spelling mistakes on the internet…
    Mechatronics……….that was just a typing mistake.... I don’t consider pointing out typing mistakes as COOL!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechatronics_engineering



    As for the question….yeah sure I’ll take the criticism positively and rephrase it…

    Im in the second semester of BCS right now…if I complete the degree, then can I go for a Masters in mechatronics engineering…or am I just limited to a masters in computer science… ??
    I checked the requirements for ‘Masters in Mechatronics engineering’ on a few universities websites…all of them clearly say that applicants must hold a bachelor of science degree in engineering from an accredited institution and must have achieved a cgpa of at least 3.0 to enroll in…
    Few universities clearly say that the applicant must hold a bachelor’s degree in aerospace or mechanical engineering to apply…. But then on the other hand some universities also say that “Degreed individuals in fields closely related to engineering or a quantitative science may be considered on a case-by-case basis.” Some students may be required to take few prerequisite discipline-bridging courses…

    So basically all I want to know is that, can I do master’s in mechatronics engineering if I only have a computer science degree in my hand….

    It's 'ukall to do with what you think is 'kool' - it's [ultimately] about whether the guy the other side of the table thinks your ass will fit in in one of his chairs.

    Now so far you've only heard from from the old guys - half a century ago I might have been able to answer this (now though I think there are two uni's in the world )

    Come on you younger guys - help him out please!

    By the way welcome to the forum - have a nice stay - and if you see our zimmer frames around don't hide them!. 8)

    I've hired several hundred people over the course of a varied career, the majority of them graduates who occupy high paying, responsible jobs. I imagine you would like a high paying, responsible job.
    One of the selection criteria I and my colleagues use is "Can the dude, you know, like communicate proper?"
    Your slovenliness in your opening post was rude. If you allow such crap to appear in any of your communications because 'it's only the internet', you are going to find it hard to communicate with clarity and precision when you have to.
    I take no pleasure in pointing out your errors. I did so out of a genuine intent to guide you towards more useful behaviour - behaviour that will reward you. It will do **** all for me.
    You may choose to view that as uncool and pretty childish. That will be your loss.
    The choice is yours.

    [By the way, I consider that pointing out spelling, typing, grammatical, factual and logical errors in my posts is not only cool, but bloody manadatory. That is one way I learn and improve. You might try it some time.]

    Now, as to your question. From what you have described I think you already have the answer - Yes, you can take a Master's in Mechatronics, subject to the approval of the governing body, at some, but not all Universities.
    The logical approach is to identify half a dozen Universities you would be interested in and communicate directly with the relevant department, asking the same questions.
    One word of caution - my preception is that the people at the forefront of this field (and thank you for introducing me to it) are the Japanese. I would be looking for a University that had some kind of affilliation with Japanese comapnies, Universities, or Research Institutes in this field.

    Good luck.

    THIS IS THE MOST CRITICAL AND NON-SUPPORTIVE BOARD I'VE VER SEEN - EVERYONE ACTS LIKE MALCONTENTED MISANTHROPES.

    That being said... I like it.

    You can get virtually any degree combo you want. Just learn about industry specific accreditation like CSAB, AACSB, ABET. If you want an ABET master's, you need an ABET bachelor's. You'll never be able to make killer robots for the guhment without a PE license.
