What does a Mechatronics technician do?

Mechatronics technicians build complex mechatronic systems such as robots from mechanical, electronic and electrical components. You test the individual components and assemble them into systems and plants. Finished systems are put into operation and the associated software is programmed or installed. This is done according to circuit diagrams and design drawings. Before a system is handed over to the customer, it must be tested. An important task of a mechatronics technician is maintenance. This involves regularly checking the mechanical systems. In this way, minor faults can be detected and rectified at an early stage. This prevents the system from breaking down completely.

What is important?

Diligence (e.g. in analysing and correcting malfunctions) Technical understanding Caution (e.g. when working on live components) Dexterity and eye-hand coordination (e.g. when assembling and replacing parts)
