Masters in Mechatronics

Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary engineering field that combines principles from mechanics, electronics, computer engineering, robotics and automatic control. Mechatronics engineers design, develop and test a broad range of automated machines from industrial systems, artificial intelligence and medical equipment, to consumer products. Since their field involves such broad knowledge of engineering, mechatronics professionals are often general engineers, rather than having a particular specialisation.

Engineering colleges and schools typically offer undergraduate studies in mechatronic engineering. Students can choose a further specialisation at postgraduate level. Mechatronics can also be offered as a concentration for mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or information technology programmes.

Studies focus on laboratory practice and applied examples. They gain basic knowledge of engineering processes, product design as well as the use of digital electronics or computer-aided design (CAD) software. Students need to possess mathematical and technical skills, logical analysis, project management and the ability to work in teams. Professionals also keep in touch with the global needs of society and innovate machinery according to those needs.

Mechatronics professionals work in various areas such as aerospace industry, chemical processing, communication, healthcare, nanotechnology, manufacturing, automation and control system design. Jobs in the field include product development, control-system engineering, data-logging engineering, electro-mechanical technology, consulting, inventing, and more.
