Introduction to Mechatronics

Mechatronics Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that combines several types of engineering-electrical, computer and mechanical and refers to the skill sets needed in the contemporary, advanced automated manufacturing industry. Mechatronics is the intersection of mechanics, electronics and computing. Mechatronics specialists create simpler, smarter systems. Mechatronics is an essential foundation for the expected growth in automation and manufacturing.

Few lines about B.Tech/BE Mechatronics Engineering

The B.Tech/BE Mechatronics Engineering is an undergraduate course that is divided into 8-semesters. The course is made after clubbing mechanical, electronics, computer and systems design engineering streams. The course strengthens the students with the skills that allow them to design, construct and run factory production lines and automated processes.

The course equips the students with the skills that enable them to use computers, micro-controllers, programming and electric drives, design of mechanical structure and mechanism and manufacturing process. The main aim of the mechatronics course is to club the principles of mechanics, electronics and computing in a simpler form in order to generate a source which can make human work easier.

Eligibility

The students who have passed PUC or 10+2 with a science background can join B.Tech/BE courses. The students interested in joining B.Tech courses are required to qualify competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges.

Admission Procedures

The students with relevant qualifications can join B.Tech/BE courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.

Let’s discuss in detail

Merit Admission

The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE Mechatronics degree should mandatorily appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The engineering college allotts the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in PUC or 10+2. 

There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students

1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling

The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). 

The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE programmes in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).

2. COMED-K Counselling

The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for Engineering programmes. 

Direct Admission  

The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE Mechatronics course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.

  • Reliance
  • Tesla
  • Bosch

Placement Opportunities

Some of the job roles available are:

Biomedical Engineers: Biomedical engineers apply engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes, such as developing new assistive devices, diagnostic tools or medical instruments. These engineers close the gap between engineering and medicine by combining the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance healthcare treatment, including diagnosis, monitoring and therapy.

Robotics Specialist: Robotics specialist is a behind-the-scenes designer, who is responsible for creating robots and robotic systems that are able to perform duties that humans are either unable or prefer not to complete. Through their creations, a robotics engineer helps to make jobs safer, easier and more efficient, particularly in the manufacturing industry.

Industrial and Manufacturing Engineers: Industrial engineers develop and put into use organizational and management systems, while manufacturing engineers design production processes. These engineers’ study new machinery and facilities and recommend or select efficient combinations, develop flexible or combined manufacturing systems and procedures, carry out studies and put into use programs to determine the best inventory levels for production and the best use of machinery, materials and resources.

Process Control & Automation Specialists: Process control and automation specialists gather requirements, design, configure, integrate and implement controls for the manufacturing industry.  These careers require knowledge of field instrumentation and technology and batch process manufacturing expertise in all project phases: requirements documentation, detailed design generation, implementation, system integration, testing and on-site start-up. 

Final Lines

The demand for B.Tech/BE Mechatronics engineering students is large and is required in diverse industrial sectors.
