Courses Mechatronics vs Materials science, which course first?

  1. May 30, 2017 #1
    I have the choice of 6ECTS, and I will use it on either a Mechatronics course or a Materials Science course.

    My field is biomedical engineering, which course would you recommend, does either of the courses pre-requisites the other?

    What do you want to do in Biomedical Engineering? I really enjoyed my Material Science class in Undergrad -- I would think it would prove more generally useful in your future work than Mechatronics, but it depends on what you want to specialize in going forward, IMO.

    -I am focused on electronics instrumentation/biochemistry. I am also taking some biochem courses and I am interested in doing research in mol biology and on the micro level.

    -I already know the teacher in mechatronics so I feel I might get a letter of recommendation from there(graduate studies).

    -I am not interested at all in biomechanics and they bore me

    -mechatronics/robotics do interest me though and I have been doing some hobby projects.
