Mechatronics Engineering Branch Details
It is centred on mechanics, electronics, control engineering, computing, molecular engineering (from nanochemistry and biology) which, combined, make possible the generation of simpler, more economical, reliable and versatile systems. The portmanteau "Mechatronics" was first coined by Mr. Tetsuro Mori, a senior engineer of the Japanese company Yaskawa, in 1969. Mechatronics may alternatively be referred to as "electromechanical systems" or less often as "control and automation engineering".Engineering cybernetics deals with the question of control engineering of mechatronic systems. It is used to control or regulate such a system (see control theory). Through collaboration the mechatronic modules perform the production goals and inherit flexible and agile manufacturing properties in the production scheme. Modern production equipment consists of mechatronic modules that are integrated according to a control architecture. The most known architectures involve hierarchy, polyarchy, hetaerachy (often misspelled as heterarchy) and hybrid. The methods for achieving a technical effect are described by control algorithms, which may or may not utilize formal methods in their design. Hybrid-systems important to Mechatronics include production systems, synergy drives, planetary exploration rovers, automotive subsystems such as anti-lock braking systems, spin-assist and every day equipment such as autofocus cameras, video, hard disks, CD-players, washing machines. Necessary Qualifications To become mechatronical engineer one needs to hold a degree in mechatronic engineering. Academic Programme A typical mechatronic engineering degree would involve classes in engineering mathematics, mechanics, machine component design, mechanical design, thermodynamics, circuits and systems, electronics and communications, control theory, programming, digital signal processing, power engineering, robotics and usually a final year thesis. Job opportunities As this branch is relatively new in India the opportunities are similar to mechanical engineers. But mechatronics graduate has a great range of career options both in New Zealand and overseas. Mechatronics engineers are expected to be employed in all sectors of manufacturing, electrical and electronics industry - from product design, manufacturing, system design, equipment and system control, robotics, automation, computer technology, quality control, industrial management, and marketing Mechatronics products and services. Early job opportunities for mechatronics graduates are likely to be in the technical support and project engineering areas such as product, process and system design engineers, production and operation engineers, electrical and electronics engineers, systems integration engineers, quality and safety engineers, research and development engineers, project supervisors and managers.
