The Mechatronics program in IIT is aimed at equipping participants with essential knowledge and hands-on, up-to-date engineering skills required by employers in the Breweries, Food and Beverages, Petrochemicals, Oil and Gas, Engineering services and Manufacturing sectors.
Mechatronics combines technologies like Mechanics, Electrics/Electronics and Information Technology; it especially covers the inter-phases between separate technologies and their collaboration in integrated and networked production systems. It attempts to help graduates of tertiary institutions and/or workers from industry back-up their theoretical knowledge with the relevant skills.
The course modules cover analyses, Commissioning and Programming of networked factory and process automation systems. The participants will use modern state-of-the- art learning equipment at the Institute. At the end of the course, each successful student will be awarded IIT’s certificate of completion in Mechatronics.
IIT is widely recognized for providing well trained workers for industry. A strong emphasis will be placed on work ethics throughout the course.
Practicing technicians and engineers and Graduates of tertiary institutions of Science and engineering background.
(A.) Full-Time: The full-time programme has a duration of 6 months. This programme runs on weekdays from 9am to 5pm. However, some modules may run from 2pm to 6pm.
