Mechanical engineers design and oversee the manufacturing of many products ranging from medical devices to new batteries.
Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines as well as power-using machines, such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems.
Mechanical engineers design other machines inside buildings, such as elevators and escalators. They also design material-handling systems, such as conveyor systems and automated transfer stations.
Like other engineers, mechanical engineers use computers extensively. Computers help mechanical engineers create and analyze designs, run simulations and test how a machine is likely to work and generate specifications for parts.
As a Mechatronic engineer
Here are some things you might be expected to do in your job:
Develop new solutions to industrial problems using mechanical and electronic processes and computer technology.
Design and build completely new products by integrating various technologies, for example, developing robotic vehicles for underwater exploration.
Build and test factory production lines introducing automation to improve existing processes.
Maintain and improve previous industrial and manufacturing processes and designs, for example, robotic lawnmowers and robot floor cleaners.
Design, develop, maintain and manage high technology engineering systems for the automation of industrial tasks.
Apply mechatronic or automated solutions to the transfer of material, components or finished goods.
Apply advanced control systems, which are usually computer-driven.
Apply electronic and mechanical processes and computers to tasks where the use of human labour may be dangerous (like underwater exploration, mining or forestry).
Study the feasibility, cost implications and performance benefits of new mechatronic equipment.
Carry out modelling, simulation and analysis of complex mechanical, electronic or other engineering systems using computers.
