Mechatronic Engineering is a new engineering field which combines engineering fields such as Electronic, Electric, Mechanical, Control, Software, Computer and Information Technology.
This field has become rapidly increasing and expanding within industries especially in the manufacturing industry since the significance of microprocessing and micro control is recognized for its significance in industrial control.
Furthermore, Mechatronic is the technology behind the smart products, which typically includes microprocessor, control system and mechanical field. An engineer equipped with knowledge, experience, and specialization in Mechatronic field is a pre-requisite for any up and running industry.
Mechatronic engineer utilizes the use of computer and digital control system for controlling processes within an industry. They combine electrical science, control, mechanical, robotic and manufacturing to fabricate a wide variety of products. These include everyday households such as washing machine, camera, photocopier machine and car anti-locking brake as well as high-tech computer control machines operated in manufacturing and fabrication industries. Regardless of its discipline, an engineer will encounter usage of mechatronic systems at one stage of their working life.
In view of that, this program is offered to equip graduates with a vast knowledge of electronics, microcontrollers, robotics, automation, control engineering, and production engineering areas. Those whose expertise revolves around these areas are extremely required by the existing industries. Graduates who are highly skilled in and capable of narrowing the gap between mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering, will have an immense advantage of employment.
