Check Out The New Course In Nigerian Universities That Is Very Lucrative and offers Self Employment!

The New Course is an engineering course and not everyone knows about this course, However, it has gradually started to gain popularity amongst students aspiring for engineering degrees. The course is called Mechatronics Engineering.

Read on, you will love it by the end of the article 🙂

What is Mechatronics engineering all about:

Mechatronics engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that combines several types of engineering - Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, controls and computer engineering.

What is expected from a Mechatronics engineer:

A mechatronics engineer unites the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to generate a simpler, more economical and reliable system. An industrial robot is a prime example of a mechatronics system; it includes aspects of electronics, mechanics, and computing to carry out it's tasks.

Courses taken in Mechatronics engineering :

Mechatronics students take courses in various fields:

- Mechanical engineering and materials science

- Electrical engineering

- Computer engineering (software & hardware engineering)

- instrumentations engineering

- Systems and control engineering

- Optical engineering, Avionics

- Programming.

Applications of Mechatronics engineering.:

• Mechatronics is widely used in our day to day lives. Be it contact-free magnetic bearings, digitally controlled combustion engines, robots, automated guided vehicles or other machine tools, mechatronics is present everywhere.

• It is used in home appliances such as dish washer and washing machines.

• It is used in laser optical systems. It is part of the image and sound processing devices such as sound operators and automatic focusing device.

• Mechatronic is also used in intelligent measuring devices like calibration devices, measuring and testing of sensors.

• Mechatronic is used in the medical field as well. Many medical applications such as magnetic resonance, ultrasonic probes, arthroscopic devices use mechatronics.

• It is used in automation like automatic air conditioning systems, security system, automatic door systems. It is also used in pressure, heat and position control systems.

• It is widely used in aeronautics engineerings for unmanned aerial vehicles and automatic pilots. In the defence industry it is used for automatically guided vehicles and mine detection robots.

Where can Mechatronics engineers work in Nigeria??

1) Oil and gas sector ( in designs, modelling and simulation, quality control, process control and automation, etc)

2) Telecommunications companies.

3) Production companies and Manufacturing companies such a Nestle, PZ Industries pLC, Unilever Nigeria pLC etc.

4) Brewing, and drinks production companies such as Nigeria Brewerys pLc, Coca-Cola plc etc.

5) Automobile industry

6) Military and Forces. (As weapons designers)

Numerous other sectors where there are need for computing, designs, networking, data analysis, A.I etc.

Universities offering Mechatronics engineering in Nigeria :

You must be a science student to study Mechatronics Engineering in Nigeria Universities, and that’s can only be possible if you meet admission requirements.

Presently these are the universities offering the course in Nigeria, asides from polytechnics.

1.Federal University Oye Ekiti

2.Bells University of Technology Ota

3.Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi

4.Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti.

5. Federal University Of Agriculture Abeokuta, Ogun State.

6. Federal University Of Technology Minna, Niger State.

7. Federal University Of Technology Owerri, Imo State.

8. Federal University Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State.

9. Bayero University Kano.

Presently under the engineering scheme, the students of this course offer the most number of courses.

It's a course with the widest potential in the engineering field, it gives one versatility and makes one flexible.

Studying mechatronic has a good career scope. The demand of nanotechnology, biomechatronics, and robotics in increasing day by day in developing countries. Also, the salary package offered to mechatronic engineers is very high.
