Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering
MECHATRONICS ENGINEERING: AN INTRODUCTION
It is a relatively new branch of engineering. Mechatronics Engineering can be said to be an integrated field that consists of elements of other engineering branches such as- electrical engineering, electronics engineering, computer science, control engineering, systems engineering and mechanical engineering.
In short, it can be said to be a multidisciplinary branch that covers topics related to various other engineering branches.
A mechatronics engineer uses principles of electronics, mechanical, control and computer engineering to develop systems, machine and solutions that can be applied to improve productivity and efficiency of process/production. Systems developed by mechatronics engineers can be used in wide variety of areas and industries. In short, its areas of application is very wide.
Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering is a 3 years long program. In cases of most institutes offering this course, the academic program is divided into 6 semesters, with each semester lasting for a period of 6 months.
Few institutes are also offering Integrated program- Diploma + B.Tech. Degree in Mechatronics Engineering.
Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering course trains students in areas such as- Mechanical systems, electrical and electronics systems, control systems, instrumentation, circuits, computer science and programming.
Students who have passed 10th standard are eligible to pursue this course. This course can also be pursued after 10+2 Science stream (Mathematics group)!
