The aim of the mechatronics courses at ITB is to produce technicians whose skills and knowledge are not confined to a single subject area, but who are capable of operating across a range of engineering disciplines and by doing so provide a link between those with more specialised skills.

Mechatronics students will typically find employment opportunities in automated manufacturing system or in the design of biomedical devices or various sub-systems of a car or aircraft. Graduates completing a course in mechatronics will be qualified as Technicians and Engineers and will be capable of working in a number of interesting areas.
