Because mechatronics engineers have interdisciplinary training, they are always in high demand and can find work in a wide variety of fields. Graduates can work in research and development, technical sales, project management, planning, and technical writing. Examples of entities using mechatronics engineers include Air Canada, Triumf, and International Submarine Engineering.
They can also work in the automotive, aerospace, computer, communications, and medical fields. They can design and build automotive components, manufacturing equipment, aerospace systems, and biomedical testing equipment. This is usually in collaboration with mechanical, electrical, computer, and biomedical engineers, and can take place on-campus, in private laboratories, or in hospitals.
Students with a mechatronics degree can also use this for further education in engineering, business, law, or medicine. This degree also allows them to apply for the professional engineering (P.Eng) designation, which allows them more employment opportunities within government agencies.
