Transcript of Mechatronics

Mechatronics Market Analysis Mechatronics Engineer Next Step Mechatronics engineering combines aspects of mechanical, electronic and computer engineering in order to increase efficiency in the production and function of manufactured goods. Accordingly, mechatronics engineers study aspects of fluid mechanics, control theory and computer programming. Industry Outlook 3 Levels for Mechatronics degree in Siemens Level 1: Siemens Certified Mechatronic Systems Assistant. Emphasis is placed on efficiently operating complex mechatronic systems, troubleshooting and foreseeing problems.

Level 2: Siemens Certified Mechatronic Systems Associate. The focus in Level 2 is on systems management, investigation, repair and troubleshooting.

Level 3: Siemens Certified Mechatronic Systems Professional. Corresponding to university-level engineering education. In this level, emphasis is placed on systems design and process optimization. Michigan Outlook Employment data and median wages data collected from Engineers in Michigan shows that:
- Median wages (2011): $43.55 hourly, $90,580 annual
- Employment (2010): 157,000 employees
- Projected growth (2010-2020): 3% to 9%
- Projected job openings (2010-2020): 44,800
- Top industries (2010): Manufacturing & Government Ferris State University Research Project Analyst:

Place (GR? What Labs? Which School? KCTC? Articulations? Off Campus model for classes, does it match our potential market?)

Price (Potential market not as high to invest in on campus labs) 1 P should be started after CC development Promotion http://education-portal.com/articles/Mechatronics_Engineer_Salary_Duties_Outlook_and_Requirements.html http://education-portal.com/articles/Mechatronics_Engineer_Salary_Duties_Outlook_and_Requirements.html Mechatronics has been identified as one of the 10 emerging technologies that will change the world. The U.S. Department of Labor listed mechatronics as a new and emerging “green jobs” growth area and part of an in-demand industry cluster specializing in the repair and maintenance of manufacturing equipment, operation systems and the related computer programming components that keep businesses operating efficiently and cost effectively. Mechatronics degree in Kirtland Community College and Partnership with Ferris State University in other programs http://www.kirtland.edu/academic-programs/mechatronics-degrees http://www.onetonline.org/link/summary/17-2199.05 1- Mark of distinction as a certified Siemens education partner.
2- Recognition as a provider of the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Exams.
3- Collaboration opportunities with the Siemens Technik Akademie Berlin to advance and promote Mechatronics education on a local, national, and international level. (We might need some additional steps and articulation)
4- Access to an international network of Mechatronics and advanced technology educators and industry partners. Benefits for Schools to join Siemens SMSCP Partner Schools must have a mechatronic training system on site.
Schools must have at least two certified teachers.
There must be an agreement with Siemens in a written form.
Program costs on request. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) doesn't provide specific salary information for mechatronics engineers, but it shows that median annual wages for all specialized engineers was $89,560 as of May 2010. Also, Mechatronics engineering is closely related to mechanical and electrical engineering.
In 2011, the median salary for mechanical engineers was $79,000 per year and electrical engineers earned a median annual salary of about $86,000. From 2010-2020, employment opportunities for mechanical engineers were expected to grow nine percent and jobs for electrical engineers were projected to grow six percent. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for mechatronics is bright through 2018.

The National Council on Competitiveness estimates that 100 million new jobs will be created in the 21st century for workers skilled in multiple disciplines.
