Mechatronics is a discipline which is an amalgamation of mechanical and electronic learnings put inside the Mechatronics package. So when we talk of scope and opportunities for a Mechatronics person then it could be in many areas related to these two disciplines and definitely the Mechatronics person has a more chance as compared to those who have a degree only in one specific subject. Anyway that is not the only criterion for making a career and we will go to other aspects in this matter.
In todays business world whether it is manufacturing or production activity everywhere machines and equipments are used which are having invariably some mechanical as well as electronic assemblies. So the growing demand of persons for various positions in these industries create a place and scope for the persons having a degree in Mechatronics.
Some of the niche areas where Mechatronics engineers can try for jobs are robotics, AI, nanotechnology, automation, system engineering, aircraft engineering, electrical and electronic industry, oceanography, oil and gas industry, biomedical systems, computer-aided design, transport equipments, defence sector, civil and construction sectors, engineering designs etc. In addition to this there are scopes in the managerial and administrative side also and some of these areas could be like graduate engineers in PSUs or private companies, design managers, research and development, sales and marketing, safety and security, industrial management, quality monitoring, training and HR etc.
One can keep a watch in the leading job portals also for Mechatronics positions and that would give more idea about the possible job openings where one can try to apply. One point which is pertinent in this matter is that nowadays for some positions some additional skill is expected and in that case one has to go through some short course and acquire that learning for increasing the chance of selection in a particular position.
Knowledge is power.
