Mechatronic Engineering is concerned with the creation; design and building of intelligent machines. This new breed of engineer has to master skills in mechanical; electronic and computer engineering and work in a hybrid manner; meeting an ever-increasing need in industry where complexity of projects is rising and resources are limited. The main areas of activity are:
* Project management and multidisciplinary approach to getting projects completed
* Fundamental design and build and ways of embedding intelligence and interfacing to the real world
* Fit and forget: construction of machines to run autonomously
* Process control and plant condition monitoring and control
* Consultation and advice in optimal methods of building systems and connecting subsystems together
* Entrepreneurial attitude and invention; manufacture and marketing of new intelligent machines.
