Mechatronics: Reality vs Expectations



hey guys welcome to this episode of reality versus expectations where I get people from different careers and have them write five to ten different cards on what they thought their crew is going to be like versus what it's actually like on this episode we're going to talk about mechatronics Jim welcome to my channel thank you for being guests on reality versus expectations can you introduce yourself sure my name is Jim Falbo I've been teaching electronics mechatronics for about 16 years before that I was in the field for about the same amount of time and glad to be on your show and share my experiences and kind of hopefully help somebody out not a lot of people know about what mechatronics is do you mind giving an explanation of what mechatronics is sure what I tell everybody is mechatronics is all about robotics and automated systems and when I say robotics everybody thinks they have this image of their in their head of just tons of robot arms doing a task and that's true we do work with those but you have to think about all the other types of equipment if you ever watch how it's made all that equipment is a lot of it is computer controlled and it's automated and that every piece of that equipment is maintained by someone who knows the mechatronics field right that's great explanation and would you say it's a field or industry that's growing really fast or changing really fast or would you say it's a fairly stagnant industry no it's it's growing and it's going to continue to grow because I could see it coming the fast food industry is going to grab a hold of this and it won't be long before your hamburger is coming out of a machine and and you're not going to deal with people cooking and putting the burger together it's all going to be done automated well somebody has to maintain that equipment yeah well hopefully my burgers won't come out so shitty then they say they say it will come out good if you ever seen a momentum machines is the name of the company have you ever heard of them no no I haven't if you search them they are building machines that can make like 200 burgers our custom mate Wow that's great and then a second question is how how hard is it for a new grad to get a job in this industry I mean that's everyone's main concern is why we why we take education so seriously is because you know nobody wants to get a degree in for for an industry that's too hard for a young person to get into yeah and that's that's a really good question and it's something I don't I would say if if you're willing to put in the time and challenge yourself and at least try it that's the biggest thing you have to try it I get a lot of girls to come through you know they're high school students they'll come through for a tour and they think it's cool and it looks cool but they end up taking cosmetology and it's like this wave of females that seem like they think that's where they belong and if they they like working with their hands in there they have the aptitude for computers and and following procedures you could give this a shot you could try this right I think that's bad I think that's the best advice you give is at least give it a try and apparently you can give it a try at Community College and I have a pretty good chance of getting a job definitely yeah so you had a reality versus expectation cards for us so why don't we just get started sure there are more jobs in engineering field than there are as a technician hmm one of the things I like to point out when people seem to approach me and say that is that and you said it yourself in one of your videos software is taking over sort of the mind work more than it is the physical work there's this whole hype about robotics taking over jobs I don't think those are the jobs that we're going to see eliminated I think what we're going to see first are are the mind jobs especially the repetitive jobs so for a lot of companies there are two or more technicians underneath the engineer so I always tell people you do the math right right right and it makes sense I mean I wish my self is as the software gets better and faster than you need less thinking because one engineer can do the work of more than you know engine as before especially as computers get faster software gets faster design gets easier people make templates you know things just go much faster so I completely agree with that so are you saying that you know if you're trying to work in mechatronics you know maybe a technician route may be a bit better it's definitely an option for someone who doesn't have the money number one if they can't afford to go to a four-year school you can look at a trade school or a two-year school and spend a lot less money and learn what you need to know get the certifications that you need to become a hands-on technician and do very well in that field if you can afford it for your school and you brought it up in your videos I won't I won't rehash that but there are schools to look at that you could save yourself money to get get the engineering degree and still be sort of an engineering technician what exactly do these technicians do and what exactly do the engine eggs do because mechatronics is one of those fields where people don't really know that much about it yeah while you've shown in your video most of the engineers that I know or the students have had that moved on to engineering they come back and they say I'm not using anything I did at the four-year school they slammed them with the math they did all these formulas and then they stuck them in front of AutoCAD or SolidWorks and now they're doing spreadsheets and and drawings and they're handling a lot of paperwork and they're verifying that if they're producing a part that it meets specs maybe there's some laws involved they have to meet your safety requirements but they're not doing anything they did at the four-year school now those engineers might have a problem on the floor let's say they have a part that's out of spec but they're going to go to the technicians and look this thing is you know you're coming a quarter of an inch shorter than you should be it's up to the technician to recalibrate that machine to make those parts come out correctly to meet those bugs there's an example for you that's a pretty good example so what about the technicians yeah the technicians they're going to do a lot of preventive maintenance usually they're going to be following a procedure they're going to have to log you know the work that they've performed something as simple as greasing a motor bearing you know they might have to learn which grease do I use how much do I use how often how do I know that motor needs greased and did the bearing blow do I have to replace that bearing they know how to do that so there's some examples that's great I think I gives people a better idea of what people do in the mechatronics industry what's your next reality versus expeditions card okay I love this one because I live this one Engineers always make more money than the technicians so let's talk about that one what's up with that when I worked as a technician in a nuclear plant my base salary was 35 an hour and I was in a union environment ibw I was a journeyman so I had to go through a lot of training so there it didn't start out that way had to get there now when we got a call at 2:00 in the morning to handle an emergency so you'd have a group of technicians and a group of engineers involved with this problem those engineers are salaried now if we got called at 2:00 a.m. a holiday they paid us double time and a half two and a half times per hour to be there at 2:00 in the morning to handle that emergency while the engineers still made the same salary and if you had a lot of emergencies that added up very quickly I mean two and a half is always going to add up and even what half times adds up really quickly so two and a half I mean that's a lot more so that's great so what would you say is is that pretty typical or is that pretty unique to you nuclear power plants and that's a good question I think it has a lot to do with Union and non-union it that's the environment that I've seen if it's a union environment you are going to get paid more and anion environment you don't get paid as much but you do have more at least my experience there seem to be more organization with the overtime they wouldn't slam you as much as they did in on the Union side are you would you say there's still a lot of Union jobs for people that may be becoming 18 right now or just graduating all now or all those union jobs dying out well that's a good one it depends on what part of the country you're in I've seen a lot like up north the Midwest region up north there seems to be a lot of union work up there and down where I'm hearing in North Carolina is mostly non-union and you know there's Goods and Bad's to both and I won't say one's better than the other but when it comes to salary and benefits that's better on the Union side is a lot of jobs in that it depends on where you are in the country I think ok what is there any way for someone to check if there's a good amount of Union jobs like some kind of website or the Canadian is there a website for Union jobs yeah if you just search IBEW which is an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers they cover a wide spectrum they do everything from low-voltage communication work all the way up to you know high-voltage substation work and and you can look into those categories on that on their website and see you know maybe they're hiring alright what's your next card Jim so Community College is for the people who couldn't make it into the four-year school wise is a misconception and you and your teach at a community college right you teach mechatronics oh so you invite you to be an expert so why is this not why our Community College is not the place where you know the less smart people go okay so I like to I like to use the phrase you do the math a lot so you're going to hear that a lot so I can go to a community college and I can take the courses that I need to transfer to the four-year school of my choice you know the degree that I'm looking for and I can spend anywhere from 75 to 80 dollars a credit hour and transfer those classes into the four-year school and over there I'm going to pay 800 to a thousand a credit hour so you do the math there's there's one big reason so mostly just I mean the cost is significantly different right so communica Lodge UCS as a non-digital slightly bargain but a huge bargain deal big time yeah for someone who's really debating on you know do I want to take out these big loans do I really want to pay this money if you know for a fact you want to get a four-year degree that's one route you can go and the other odd I like to suggest is if you have the time and the patience you can get hired on with a company that has tuition reimbursement now you're getting work experience and take classes when you can and it take you a little bit longer but when you're done now you have two things that a lot of graduates don't you don't have debt because you didn't pay you know don't have those loans and you have the work experience that they didn't have so my question is I think we were mentioning earlier can someone actually get a job with a two-year mechatronics degree from a community college yes there are companies that will do internships before they graduate and I think that's that's a really fair way to go they put them through the wringer basically and see if they cut the mustard and what does I mean what does that mean in plain words and also and also do they need to get certifications to get these jobs like how can they make themselves more qualified because I'm sure a lot of people are applying for these jobs if it only takes a two year degree you'd be surprised how how little people take advantage of this route I don't know if it's that they're not aware of it or or maybe they're intimidated by it and I haven't happened a lot somebody comes to my lab they say hey this sounds like a good degree I'd like to look at this and they walk in and they see all these wires they see robots and they freak out and they think I don't know if I'm smart enough to do that they just have to get out of that comfort zone and challenge themselves to to check it out to at least try it and nine times out of ten a couple of semesters into it they're pretty comfortable with it they can get a job even if they're they don't have the certificates completed or the degree completed if they're working on it a lot of companies will give them a test or interview them and if they pass they'll say okay we're going to put you on a probationary period and in 90 days if we feel like you have the skillsets we need we're going to keep you onboard that's great that's great all right what's your next card after I get my engineering degree I'm going to make a ton of money for doing very little work this is something that I see the high school students believing because a lot of counselors are going with that work smart not hard philosophy and if you get into the right company you're going to be out there with the technicians you're going to be wearing your hard hat your safety glasses earplugs heel toe shoes like everybody else and you're going to have to get out there and get dirty sometimes for instance if you go to work at a oil refinery you are going to be getting dirty with the technicians you're going to be dealing with a loud stinky messy environment but you're going to make a good living and it's pretty circuit secure job and that you know an oil refinery isn't going anywhere if you get a job in a cubicle type environment yeah it might be a nice air-conditioned office and you don't have to do the dirty work but that job to me is not more secure is it less secure because you know with the oil rig they physically need you there so I mean it's harder to replace with better software um it's you know it's just harder to replace whereas you know what the computer job you ask computer gets better it's easier to replace you yeah yeah how much would you say an average mechatronics engineering graduate would make starting into the field at least and the industries that you've seen well I'll give you one example if if you become a wind turbine technician up north you have to travel if it's a traveling technician they're specializing in certain turbines and that and if you've seen them I don't know if you have a lot of that where you're at but up north there are wind turbines all over the place and they're still put men those technicians that travel could start out at around 30 an hour it's not bad at all for a fresh college graduate know know that depending on the company and where they're going but they can't find people to travel that seems to be classy money yeah so someone who's not doing that kind of job just to let's say Procter & Gamble manufacturing floor you're probably going to start out walking in the door close to 2022 an hour but you're going to camp out close to 30 in probably five seven years yeah no I completely agree with a manufacturing capsule very early and it actually doesn't pay very much wind turbines actually is for some reason I checked the Bureau of Labor Statistics it's the number one growing occupation in America right now which is I thought was a very particular skill and I guess it's true I mean I don't see it as much here but I guess you see it a lot from where you're from yeah and I was going to share because I know you do a lot of research on you you search job titles and look at the out of what the is it the Occupational Outlook yes yeah yeah yeah Search PLC technician if you search that phrase or electro-pneumatic technician that's the same thing as mechatronics they just don't title it that way oh that's great so so on that you know is trying to look at my kitronik stuff I can't find anything pasted search those terms instead yeah that'll show you with the mechatronics degree technician or an engineer you should be able to find you know in that and those searches what your job prospects are alright Jim what's the air next guard okay this is more for the high school students vocational classes are for the dumb kids and you might have to tell me to get off my soapbox on this one I really get upset with counselors who you know they have one counselor 485 students the counselor sits them down on the computer and they have to i'm not down in the counselor they're jammed this is the only way they can do it they sit them down and they tell them take this test now that student takes the test and the test tells the student here's what job you'd be good at and the counselor sits down with them and says you know you you do well in math I think that between that and the test you just took you should go into engineering that might not be true for that student at all but they kind of push him into that vocational classes are skilled trades they're not people think all you're just getting out of high school to go build birdhouses and that that's not what you're doing there's there are mechatronics there's welding there's some have plumbing and pipe fitting I've seen residential wiring wiring up houses carpentry those are all skilled trades that provide a good living and if you like working with your hands you're a tactile learner that's what you should look at Oh I'll cut myself off there hahahaha no I completely agree so you know in my generation no I'm 28 we had a generation of pushing everybody toward being engineer a doctor and then now we're kind of seeing that backlash because now these these fields like you know the ones you just mentioned the textile ones they have under under supply so now they're gonna their wages are going to be even higher because you know people my generation just were encouraged not to do those kind of things yeah and an interesting fact I don't think I've heard you mention it but in other countries and and by the way I commend you for the traveling that you're doing I think I wish everybody could do that and see how the other side lives because I bet you're learning a lot from oh yeah it's it's a it's American appreciation day every day I'm out there the the cost of automation is coming down and it has to do with computing power and Moore's law that all comes into play and machines are going to get smarter but physics is still on our side as a technician wearing any part that moves is going to wear and you're going to need somebody to maintain that and and keep that working when you need to make a change you need somebody to reprogram that a lot of times that's not the engineer the engineer tells the technician I need this machine to do a different task and the tech will then update you know the logic in that machine because the cost is coming down the companies are catching on oh I can automate in China and then pay to ship it over here or I can just automate here and ship it from one state to another and I think you're going to see more automation come in and then they're going to need more and more people involved with the engineering and technician work all right Jim do you have any more cards for us if I don't get a four-year degree I'm going to fail in life don't let your counselors push into that either you decide don't let the test decide let you decide oh I'll just cover out there uh you know I think I think we already mentioned that before is this you know this these technician roles are being under fulfilled they're unionized and I aim install that SoCal gas gas meter readers and their job was just to go around the city and read people's gas meters they started off at $25 an hour because that group is unionized and could you imagine your job is just to drive around a car and check meters and you're like well I use this much gas $25 an hour starting it's a service and they would cap out pretty late like it later in their mid-career they would be making around $90,000 and usually they don't make more than a hundred thousand unless they take a huge management role but uh you know they would make a very comfortable comfortable living yeah I know I had a friend that did that for the utility company he used to do it with a pair of binoculars I miss car hey at least you think smart about it all right Jim what's your next card this is my last thing that I wanted to share I get it the question that comes up is with online courses you know should I take that degree a lot of it's offered online is that a good way to learn that field and I always tell people to fill in the blank on this I won't read it I'll just let you fill in the blank I would hire a blank that learned that degree online that is Semyon that is completely true it does cater to some industries and except some industries it makes no absolute sense like if you're trying to cut people's hair it would make no sense and I guess what about the mechatronics industry oh well you know as an engineer there's a lot of theory that you can learn online and that's that's feasible unfortunately a lot of that theory you're not going to use what ice tell everybody if you want to be an engineer and you learn a drawing program probably learn more than one learner spreadsheets learn macros you know how to create macros for repetitive work and you're an engineer if you know how to navigate that software and you understand the theory behind it you're an engineer but you are not going to sit down with a pencil and paper and do longhand math like they've made you do for 13 years in school that that's gone and and you should see the math instructors that me on that oh yeah yeah yeah uh and at the point that you mentioned uh you know you pretty much described all my engineering jobs that have had is pretty much a drawing software some spreadsheets and some macros and I've talked about it over and over again because it's the truth you know if you're doing you know mechanical engineering a mechatronics engineering you're going to be doing those two tasks a lot typically you know at most rules unless you have well that's you know very different from the standard but you know I completely agree with that it's probably a majority of mechatronics and mechanical engineering rules yeah and I have a story to share with you that I know that you've loved you made a comment in one of your videos with Erin you said trying is to look busy all the time a soul-sucking that's exactly how you put it and I couldn't agree more it just sucks the life out of you to try and look busy all the time and I had what the engineering job that I had by the way I was an engineer for two years and got out of it as quick as I could because I knew I that wasn't for me there was a guy a pariah it was a supervisor next to me and you know when you're in cubicles when somebody gets a phone call you can't help but hear the conversation and I didn't take me long to pick up on when this guy got a call and it was kind of a job he would stand up and look around to see who was busy and give them the job if they if they weren't doing anything and I got so sick of getting handed the crap work that I created a PowerPoint presentation that gave the appearance that I was stuck in the plotter printing out a plot when I hear the call I hit ctrl F and he would look at my screen and go you're in the middle of a plot he'd leave me alone done somebody else and it worked it worked but it was soul sucking I hated yeah no I completely agree it seems like this industry is really like that across the board and you know people will complain YouTube comments saying well your your experience was unique I think my experience was the more was the more common experience and experience that people have in there has these high school students have in their heads are the unique experience that set the exception experience and then my experience is going to be the typical anybody who gets into research and development they're going to be doing a lot of team work a lot of trial and error designing on the fly they're going to use those skill sets that every four-year school seems to want to you know give to everybody but the majority of those engineering jobs out there are not that yeah overwhelming majority all right Jim thank you for being guests on my channel I really appreciate it and I'll talk to you another time all right thanks for having me all right so I hope you guys got something from that episode of reality

    Mechatronics is a great field to get into and with very little schooling you can get a job. After my first year of study I had no problem getting call backs and interviews for jobs.

    Only thing I would say is if you go that route you will most likely get put into a mechanic or preventive maintenance tech position which is generally the lowest rank of technician but once you get more schooling and experience it will become easier to find a job where you are doing more of what you want.

    Few things I disagree with this guy. Some community colleges for mechatronics is just about the same price if you go to a 4 year school. Where I went if you took a full time course load it would cost you 15k a semester. Granted you would be done in 2 years so it would be cheaper but it's still pretty expensive. I would agree with the tuition reimbursement through a job although your employer will normally make you sign a 2 to 3 year agreement after you finish or you'll have to pay them back in 6 to 12 months.

    Most union jobs you will make more but you'll have to pay union dues go to meetings and deal with more people that shouldn't be there but due to the union, the company can't get rid of them.

    A mechatronics engineer could branch up to anything in a pool of engineering options, Aeronautics, A.I, Autonomous vehicle, Industrial Automation eng. , Robotics, Electrical, Mechanical….. just make sure you narrow down or you'ill end up half-assing everything. If you are an international student planning to work abroad, plan on your work visa earlier before you graduate or the visa hurdle will disappoint you.

    Do you have to be good at math if you just want to be a mechatronic technician? And do you make decent money? I've heard that you can make just as much as an engineer as a technician but I've also heard you only make 56k a year or so. In the United States, that is

    Im an electrical maintenance tech, I went to a tech/trade school to learn my craft. As a part of the class, they offered a mechatronics class at the end. I stopped just short of it. I dont know if I regret it or not, but a lot of what most maintenance techs work on will include mechatronics work. Today Im more specialized into PLC programming for instance.

    Hey,
    I am a mechanical engineering student currently in my second year. I did not know mechatronics existed before I joined university. Is mechanical engineering similar to mechatronics and can I get into PLC with this? I am really into programming and logic controllers. Should I be looking at restarting or should I be continuing with mech and hope to get into robotics and PLC type stuff.

    My son is in an Engineering Transfer Program at a community college to save money & live at home. He's thinking about biomedical engineering since bad health & disease is becoming worse. Hopefully humans will be sterilized when the fast food industry becomes automated considering this is now the only place to work in small towns. Online shopping is taking over retail so human jobs are in jeopardy.

    Hi Matt, I have a question.

    I think I'm interested in Electromechanical Engineering since it gives you the opportunity to work with Robotics and there's a lot of Hands On projects which allows you to build anything in relation to robotics and etc. My question to you is that, I'd like to work with Technology, but I'd like to work with Microelectronics. I wouldn't mind designing/building smartphones, drones, & stuff of that nature but I'm MAINLY interested in working like designing smartphones/tablets/2-in-1 laptops. Generally stuff of that nature.

    Can you do that in Mechatronics?

    Very different then my (short) experience. I have a 2 year diploma, and I design and build automated machines. Design some manufacturing, programming and debugging.

    between the "expert" being unable to use his native language correctly ("it's all going to be made automated…)" to the metrosexual dbag whining "maybe my burger won't be sh**", this is a stupid vid.
