Mechatronics Engineering is the synergistic integration of mechanics, electronics, control and systems theory, and computers into a complex, single system used within production and manufacturing, in order to improve and/or optimize its efficiency, productivity, and quality.
Mechatronics Engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection and maintenance. Their work is more narrowly focused and application oriented than that of scientists and engineers. Many engineering technicians assist engineers and scientists, especially in research and development. Others work in quality control, inspecting products and processes, conducting tests, or collecting data. In manufacturing, they may assist in product design, development or production. Engineering technicians solve technical problems. They may assist engineers and scientists with research and development. They build or setup equipment and conduct experiments. They collect data and calculate results to make models of new equipment. Technicians may work in quality control where they check products, perform tests and collect data. In manufacturing, they help to design and develop products. They also discover ways to produce items efficiently.
