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.
