Our society is ever-evolving and continuously progressing especially in the aspect of technology. As such, robots are becoming a part of our society and can be used in various fields, particularly in education. For further understanding of the area, the study entitled "The Age of Mechatronics: A Phenomenological Study of Students’ Utilization of Educational Robots in Class" had determined that the use of robots is beneficial to the specialized course, and established that it is convenient for the students in comprehending and applying knowledge relating to their course. In conformity, this study is a qualitative type of research, specifically a phenomenological study, which utilized four (4) 5th- year college students of Mechatronics Engineering as participants. Data was collected through a focus group interview that was held inside the premises of Adamson University, a catholic educational institution in the City of Manila. Verbatim transcription was employed for the data to be credible, and related literature and studies were used to support the data. Moreover, having robots in class is a productive way for the students to learn, experience, and be able to have an effective learning discovery. Teachers need to be reassured that the sole purpose of this study is not to replace them with robots, but rather provide them with a teaching tool/aid that can complement the students’ learning experience.
