What is Mechatronics?

The word Mechatronics is a combination of two words. The two words are Mechanical and Electronics. They are combined in both title and job function.

  • A Mechatronics technician is the highly skilled version of a Maintenance Technician.
  • A Mechatronics Technician is the jack of all trades in the industrial Engineering field.
  • The Mechatronics field combines the disciplines of mechanical, electrical and computer engineering.
  • We are problem solvers in the industrial field.
  • The field of Mechatronics is ideal for individuals who like variety and solving problems with their hands as much as sitting down and solving them with a computer.



Mechatronics = MechTechs
