Mechatronics Engineering!


Incorporating Electronics More and More into Mechanisms



Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary branch of mechanical engineering,

electrical and computer engineering, and software engineering that is concerned

with integrating electrical and mechanical engineering to create hybrid systems. In essence, mechatronics is adding intelligence to a mechanical design or replacing mechanical designs with an intelligent electronic solution.

What Mechatronics Engineers Do?

Mechatronics is at the cutting edge of the development of intelligent products.

A mechatronic Engineer is a person who exploits a synergy between mechanics and electronics to design,

construct and maintain improved products and processes.

Mechatronics engineers can work in design and construction

of new products or upgrading existing products.

Mechatronics engineers use their skills in computers, microcontrollers, programmable logic controllers,

programming, industrial sensors, hydraulic, pneumatic and electric drives,

design of mechanical structures and knowledge of production processes.

Mechatronics engineers have research and development opportunities in

nanotechnology, robotics, Wire technologies for vehicles,

biomedical engineering, and other developing areas.
