Mechatronic engineers design and implement mechanical devices that combine mechanics, software design, and electronics.

The term Mechatronics means the mix of mechanics and electronics. The field of Mechatronics is the combination of mechanical, electrical, electronics, computer science and information technology. Mechatronics is used all around us, from computer hard drives and robotic assembly systems to washing machines, coffee makers, and medical devices. Today, Mechatronics is one of the ten emerging technologies slated to transform the world.

Therefore, Mechatronic engineers have excellent employment prospects since the demand for professionals with knowledge of mechanical and electronic systems has increased in recent years. A mechatronics graduate can utilise his/her multiple skills for system designing, and manufacturing the products by incorporating control, electronic and computer devices.

The School of Mechatronics offers Certificate, Diploma & Degree programs in line with the industry needs.

B.Tech in Mechatronics provides engineers with multi-disciplinary skills. The programme is made after clubbing mechanical, electronics computer and systems design engineering streams. There are significant laboratory-based design experiments to ensure the right skills have been imparted. Mechatronics programme strengthens the students with the skills that allow them to design, construct and run factory production lines and automated processes.

Topics covered in the programs include: Low-level interfacing of software with hardware; use of high-level graphical programming tools to implement real-time computation tasks; digital logic; analogue interfacing and power amplifiers; measurement and sensing; electromagnetic and optical transducers; control of mechatronic systems

Career opportunities in this fast-changing field exist in both private industry and publicly funded enterprises. Our course will allow students to become sound professionals across the following job roles:

  • Mechatronics Engineer
  • Design and development Engineer
  • Service Engineer/Maintenance Engineer
  • Automation Engineer
  • Process Engineer
  • Mechanical / Electronics design engineer
  • Manufacturing Engineer
  • Project Engineer
  • Robotics Engineer
  • Medical and Healthcare product developer

Typical industries where mechatronics engineers are in high demand are:

  • Robotics
