How to learn Automobile Mechatronics Systems?

Please provide how to acquire Mechatronics knowledge, interior automobile mechatronics.  For example, motor powered seats inside the minivan.  How to gain knowledge of motor torque, motor current?  I believe there are different types of motors?  What motor might be used to power seats in a minivan?

How to gain knowledge of dynamic mechanics and electronics?  How to gain knowledge of Mechatronics Automobile System Engineering?

How to learn mechanical devices are being driven by electronics and controlled digitally by microcomputers that execute smart algorithms

Please provide very basic to most advanced steps to acquire requested knowledge.

Here is the relevant course from the MIT OpenCourseWare website:
     http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mechanical-engineering/2-737-mechatronics-spring-1999/

It is not specifically geared (NPI) toward automotive applications.  Also note that it is a senior/graduate level course with significant prerequisites:  basic electronics and feedback theory.  These also assume mathmatics up to and including calculus, physics and mechanical systems (energy, momentum, friction and heat flow, as well as gears, belts, and levers).  And some sort of computer programming.

Do you want to design these systems, or repair them?
Are you starting with any math, science, engineering background?

There are college level curricula for designers, and trade/high school level curricula for maintenance and repair.
