  • QUALIFICATION: Mechatronics NQF Level 2 – 5
  • Duration: 4 years
  • Credits: 120

Programme Overview:

Mechatronics engineering is a synergistic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronics and computer design systems used to control and automate mechanical products with electrical signals. These electrical signals are interfaced via a computer-based programming language. These systems are found in numerous industries such as mines, milling, petrochemical, cosmetics and motor car manufacturers. The knowledge of Mechatronics will allow you to work and control various processes and maintain the systems to operate efficiently and effectively. This includes knowledge of precision robotics, conveyer belt systems, milling industries, packaging systems, rail and light control, etc.

On completion of a Mechatronics certification the student will be able to:

  • Explain fundamental theories and principles of operations.
  • Control Mechatronic and assemble Mechatronic systems.
  • Test the operation and commission of Mechatronic systems.
  • Operate Mechatronic systems, do fault finding and rectify problems.
  • Perform maintenance, work according to correct procedures, use hand tools and operate machine tools to produce components for maintenance and repair purposes.
