Diploma: (diploma)

Mechatronics is an inter-disciplinary field, combining traditional electrical, electronic, mechanical, control and computer engineering skills, applied to solve problems that bridge the boundaries between these disciplines, requiring multi-skilled practitioners. Mechatronic engineering includes the study of electronics, software and mechanical engineering in the design and manufacture of products and processes.

In addition, the wide and varying range of work involved requires the development of good transferable Engineering skills to provide the basis for continuing professional development.

Purpose and Rationale of the qualification
Persons achieving this qualification will be able to, independently as well as under supervision, integrate analytical and practical engineering techniques and engineering knowledge to solve well-defined and open-ended engineering problems. They will also be able to select criteria to judge processes and outcomes. This qualification is intended for engineering practitioners in industry.


Career Opportunities
Students will therefore follow a course of study that covers a broad range of different disciplines so that they can develop, manage, integrate, manufacture, and operate mechatronics systems and components. Graduates from the program would follow a career in a multidisciplinary engineering environment in the printing, packaging, food processing, manufacturing, assembly, automation and automotive industries.
