Mechatronics is a synergetic combination of Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics and Information Technology. As the world is getting more and more advanced day-by-day along with inventions, improvements and updates in technology, the need for specialized engineers, who can do varied jobs are more in demand in the recent days...
Mechatronics, being an esoteric course, stands amidst one of those many varied advanced engineering technologies that are much needed for the modern world of technologies. Because of his varied knowledge in various fields, a Mechatronics Engineer could easily replace the work done by four different engineers who are specialized in a single field alone.
Mechatronics Engineers are much in demand in advance hybrid system, Bio-mechatronics, power engineering, Bio Medical Nano Technology, Orthopedics, Robotics and Research. Aeronautical companies, shipping, and IT companies are other areas where a Mechatronics Engineer finds himself useful.
Many existing jobs categories currently or will soon require Mechatronics skills and problem solving ability among workers who currently design, implement, manufacture, service, and repair a wide array of equipment.
Places to work for Mechatronics graduates:
- Shell Exploration & Production
