Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Hons.) in Mechatronics (Automotive)

JPT/BPP (R/525/6/0030) 11/17, MQA A 8199

Mechatronic engineering is one of the newest branches of engineering, and has far-reaching applications to every sector of society. The name Mechatronics stems from mechanical and electronics and is a relatively new approach to product design and development, merging the principles of electrical, mechanical, computer and industrial engineering. It addresses the four interconnected disciplines used for all complex modern devices. Mechatronic systems are typically composed of traditional mechanical and electrical components but are referred to as "smart" devices or systems because of the incorporation of sensors, actuators and computer control systems. In automotive industry, modern automotive manufacturers are dealing with a growing trend to blend mechanical, electro-mechanical, digital control systems, and electronic design elements into one integrated system.

Career Path

Mechatronic graduates are in great demand as industries seek to apply evolutionary advances in computers, electronics, sensors, and actuators to improve their products, processes and services. Graduates are in demand wherever there is potential for improvement in the integration of computer and electrical hardware with mechanical systems. Mechatronics graduates can work in any company that develops designs or manufactures and markets "smart" devices. Opportunities exist in manufacturing, sales and as well as research. Mechatronic devices have crept into everyday life.
