Professional mechatronics engineers are typically found in positions where they are responsible for integrated computer controlled mechanical and electrical systems such as those found in the manufacturing and mining industries. They are also employed in electrical plants and companies where automation and process control is required. Career opportunities in this fast-changing field exist in both private industry and publicly funded enterprises.
Different expertise required
More complex safety issues
Increase in component failures
In short: as mechatronics engineer you are not limited in any way, you always have the opportunity to specialize in one of the fields of mechatronics and work in this specialization (e.g. control systems, mechanical engineering). This is the future, most of machines are mechatronic systems (welding robots, packing and assembly
, meat processing
, smart homes
, mechatronic cars
and more) and it is a possibility to work in each of the areas of life.
