Mechatronics technicians are skilled at designing, building, repairing and adjusting components and systems in automated products such as packing lines and labelling machines.

Mechatronics is a mixed discipline (it is also known as Mechanical and Electronics Engineering) which overlaps with mechanics, robotics, pneumatics, electronics and computer technology. It focuses on the automation industry and technicians build and repair systems like shop till belts and cash registers, lifting and transporting machinery change machines and measuring equipment.

Mechatronics technicians need to undertake mechanical maintenance, equipment building and component machining, as well as being able to adjust and control automated systems.
