Mechatronic engineers work at the interface of mechanical devices and electronic control systems.
With the ever-increasing reach of robotics and autonomous systems, mechatronic engineers are found in diverse industries including aerospace, agriculture, biotechnology mining and energy resources.
As the number of industries that are innovating through digital technologies grows, so do the opportunities for mechatronic engineers. Rapid advances in automation applications – such as self-driving vehicles and mine-site automation – are driving an increased need for mechatronic engineers with expertise in mechanical, electronic and computer systems engineering.
Numerous industries, including mining, transportation, agriculture and biomedical engineering, also require mechatronic engineers to work towards solutions for some of society’s most pressing problems.
