Mechatronics is an integration of various fields and there is a broad area of research in this field such as the development of electrically mechanized systems, human-machine interface, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), embedded computers and sensors, and actuators, etc.
Scope of Mechatronics in Pakistan
There is a vast scope of Mechatronics Engineering in Pakistan and we will be addressing some of the major industries here.
Scope of Mechatronics in Automobiles
About 20 years ago, the cars were just mechanical. This means that there had been no presence of the electronics systems in the vehicles. Now every vehicle on the road has electronic components and even driverless cars are also available in the market now. So, there is a very big demand for engineers in car production industries who know mechanical as well as electronics.
Scope of Mechatronics in Modern Machinery
In the production and maintenance of modern machinery, engineers should have a good knowledge of robotics. So, Mechatronics Engineers are considered an important part of this industry.
Scope of Mechatronics in Aviation Companies
The computing and control system is the backbone of the aviation industry. Mechatronics Engineers produce this system and play an important role in the success of the company.
Mechatronics Engineering Jobs in Pakistan
There are many opportunities for Mechatronics Engineers to work in Pakistan. In simple words, they can speak both languages of mechanical and electrical engineering so they can work with both teams.
Many industries in Pakistan are offering jobs to Mechatronics Engineers, and some of the top companies are
- Interloop Limited, Faisalabad
