What is Mechatronics?
Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic system. It is the science that serves as interface for five disciplines:
- Process Automation
Why is there so much interest in Mechatronics?
Mechatronics is one of the most dynamic developing fields of technology and science.
Mechatronics = Mechanics + Electronics + Informatics
Mechatronics is regarded as a modern approach to automation techniques for the broadly defined needs of engineering and education. Mechatronics humanizes machines and teaches new technologies and ways of acquiring knowledge and skills.The most important feature of Mechatronic devices is the ability to process and communicate information accurately in different types of signals ( mechanical, electrical, hydraulic pneumatic, optical chemical, biological), with high level of automation of these devices.
What are the advantages of Mechatronics?
- Comparatively low-cost owing to a high degree of integration, unification and standardization of all elements and interfaces.
- Ability to do complicated and precise movements of high quality owing to application of intellectual control methods.
- High reliability, durability and noise immunity.
- Constructive compactness of modules.
- Opportunity to rebuild functional modules to advanced systems and complexes according to specific purposes of the customer
Where can Mechatronics be applied?
Mechatronics can be applied in Industries like:
- Oil and Gas
- Food and Beverage
- Water Treatment
What is the career path for Mechatronics trained and skilled staff /worker
