B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Mechatronics
Why take this course?
Mechatronics is a discipline that combines mechanical and electronic engineering that equips engineering aspirants with skills to design, construct, and run factory production lines and automated processes. The future engineers are trained to use their skills in computers, micro-controllers, programmable logic controllers, programming, industrial sensors, hydraulic, pneumatic, and electric drives, the design of mechanical structures, mechanisms, and comprehend the knowledge of manufacturing processes.
B. Tech degree in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Mechatronics is the study of the moving parts that drive robots, electronics, and machines. This 4-year course primarily focuses on core concepts of mechanical engineering coupled with aspects of developing novel products based on mechatronic principles. Candidates study electronic and mechanical systems, process control and instrumentation, robotics, and automated manufacturing. As a broad academic discipline, it embraces mechanical engineering, manufacturing, electronics, and computer technology.
Hands-on operating experience with pneumatics, hydraulics, electricity, and manufacturing of mechanical parts and machines
Awareness of control system topics like creation, repair, and troubleshooting of electrical, thermal, flow, and mechanical systems and acquaintance with the technology used in computer, mechanical, electronics, and control systems
Familiarity with computed numerically controlled (CNC) machines, conveyor belts, robots, and other machines used in manufacturing
Ability to examine the reliability of machines and products, understanding of manufacturing techniques, testing, and diagnosing faulty manufacturing components and consideration of environmental factors
Mechatronics Engineers have a wide scope of career opportunities in India as this program incorporates the concepts of electronic and mechanical engineering into a single entity. The curriculum covers those regions of engineering that is concerned with the increasing integration of electronic, mechanical, and software engineering into production processes. It takes the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to design an essential and more economical system.
Mechatronics engineers are expert technicians and professional engineers who design and maintain automated equipment. Successful graduates can find employment in industries like manufacturing, automobile, software, etc. Some of the companies that hire such graduates are TATA, Ford, and NASA, etc. Graduates can work in departments such as Technical Services, Machine Designer, Packaging Engineer, Automation Specialist, and Human/Machine Interface (HMI) Programming. The average starting salary offered ranges generally between INR 4 to 8 Lacs per year, which advances with expertise in the field.
Other major domains hiring Mechatronics Engineers are
Medical and assistive technology
Mining or Defence
Unmanned aerial and ground vehicles
Pass marks in PUC/10+2 examination with physics and mathematics as compulsory subjects along with one of the chemistry/computer science /Electronics/ and must have secured at least 60% marks (55% in case of candidate belonging to SC/ST category) in the above subjects taken together.
