What can we do?
- design, develop, maintain and manage high-technology engineering systems for the automation of industrial tasks
- apply mechatronic or automated solutions to the transfer of material, components or finished goods
- apply advanced electronic control systems, which are usually computer-driven
- design and assist in the manufacture of consumer products, such as cameras and video recorders
- apply electronic and mechanical processes and computers to tasks where the use of human labour may be dangerous (eg underwater exploration, mining or forestry)
- carry out studies into the feasibility, cost implications and performance benefits of new mechatronic equipment
