Modular Mechatronics



Why Modular Mechatronics?

The Mechatronics program is aimed at equipping participants with essential knowledge and hands-on, up-to-date engineering skills required by employers in the Breweries, Food  and Beverages, Petrochemicals, Oil and Gas, Engineering services and Manufacturing sectors.

Mechatronics combines technologies like Mechanics, Electrics/Electronics and Information Technology; it especially covers the inter-phases between separate technologies and their collaboration in integrated and networked production systems. It attempts to help graduates of tertiary institutions and/or workers from industry back-up their theoretical knowledge with the relevant skills.
