Mechatronics is an exciting new field that focuses on both electrical and mechanical systems. Mechatronics includes a combination of electronics, mechanics, robotics, computer programming, telecommunications and controls.
As technology advances, industries are incorporating mechatronics systems into their manufacturing processes in the form of automated machinery, programmable logic controllers, robotics etc. These systems need to be designed, assembled, installed, debugged and serviced. These skills are performed by Mechatronics Technicians. The demand for Mechatronics Technicians far outweighs the supply.
