Mechatronics

Building automated systems for industry using mechanics, electronics, pneumatics, and computer technology.

Why is this skill important?

Mechatronics combines skills in mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, electrics, electronics, computer technology, production digitalization technology (industrial ioT: RFID, NFC, wireless communication, PLC web-server, Cyber Security, Vision Systems, Augmented reality, etc), robotics and systems development. The computer technology element covers the programming of PLC’s, robots and other handling systems and information technology applications, programmable machine control systems, and technology which enable communication between machines, equipment, and people.

Mechatronics technicians design, build, commission, maintain, repair, and adjust automated industrial equipment, and also program equipment control systems and human machine interfaces (HMI). They are also able to handle fluids in the field of industrial applications. Outstanding mechatronics technicians are able to meet a variety of needs within industry. They carry out mechanical maintenance and equipment building. They also deal with equipment for information gathering, components (sensors), and regulating units.

The mechatronics Technician abides by safety procedures and standards for industrial contexts, mostly where machinery is involved. They also know the importance of safety devices and know how to install them.

Industrial applications include automated production and process lines that include assembly, packaging, filling, labelling, and testing, as well as automated distribution and logistics systems.
