In late twentieth century, a new discipline of engineering emerged as an offspring of mechanical engineering and electronics. The term mechatronics was coined by Tetsuro Mori and was trademark of Yasakawa Electric Corporation from 1971 to 1982. In order to understand the evolution of mechatronics, one needs to understand the evolution of mechanical, electrical, electronics, and computer engineering. A brief history of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering is presented in this chapter. The discipline of mechatronics is evolving. Some discussion about latest trend in technology is also presented.
