Mechatronics is defined as a combination of mechanics and electronics which is controlled by computers. This includes designing robots or machines for various purposes; from the space rovers which explore planets, to auto-focusing digital cameras.
This course has an emphasis on teamwork and a broad technical ability, which is useful as a link between professionals with diverse engineering skills.
Careers or Further Progression...
The future is virtually unlimited for mechatronics, and much of it is here today. Robotic systems and components are already as small as a few microns and researchers are investigating nano-technologies using mechatronic systems for implantation into the human body to repair or replace damaged physiological functions. The next two decades will see an explosion of automated mechatronic systems infiltrating our lives more and more every year.
This course has been developed in direct response to industrial demand for technicians with multi-disciplinary skills. Mechatronics technicians can expect to find employment with companies in the electronic, mechatronic and healthcare industries.
