Was reading a BMW bulletin on wiring.
"The staff in the workshop (mechanics, vehicle electricians and mechatronicians) can all look at the wiring...."
Have never seen that term. Google it and there are many references. At work we called them System Specialists.

That's a new one on me too. Even harder to pronounce than swaged...

The oilfield called them ISTs: integrated systems technicians.

So Randy, what exactly does that mean? Will that help get gasoline any cheaper? :)

While I have an Economics degree, my younger brother actually graduated from San Jose State with an Engineering degree, and his specialization was actually in Mechatronics.

From the Journal of Mechatronics

"Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design of products and manufacturing processes. It relates to the design of systems, devices and products aimed at achieving an optimal balance between basic mechanical structure and its overall control. The purpose of this journal is to provide rapid publication of topical papers featuring practical developments in mechatronics. It will cover a wide range of application areas including consumer product design, instrumentation, manufacturing methods, computer integration and process and device control, and will attract a readership from across the industrial and academic research spectrum. Particular importance will be attached to aspects of innovation in mechatronics design philosophy which illustrate the benefits obtainable by an a priori integration of functionality with embedded microprocessor control. A major item will be the design of machines, devices and systems possessing a degree of computer based intelligence. The journal seeks to publish research progress in this field with an emphasis on the applied rather than the theoretical. It will also serve the dual role of bringing greater recognition to this important area of engineering. "
