Grads find high-paying careers with a mechatronics degree


DR. BAEHRE-KOLOVANI:
ON AVERAGE, A STUDENT IN A
MECHATRONICS PROGRAM, WORKING FULLTIME IN ANY OF
THE MARINE TERMINALS OR ADVANCED MANUFACTURING’S, COULD EASILY EARN
$50,000 TO START WITH. JOSHUA MULLINS: YOU KNOW
YOU COULD EASILY START $40,000 A YEAR, PLUS. AS SOON AS I GOT ON I
STARTED LOOKING TO YOU KNOW, GET A MORTGAGE
AND BUY A HOME. CHRISTIAN KOESTLER: IF YOU
TALK ABOUT A MEDIAN RANGE TECHNICIAN LEVEL, YOU’RE
TALKING UP TO $60,000, DEPENDING ON THE SKILL SETS. IT’S A HIGHLY SKILLED
PERSON WHICH CAN DEAL IN THE ELECTRONICS AND IN
THE MECHANICAL FIELD, MOST LIKELY A
MECHATRONICS TECHNICIAN. JIM TRAVERS: THIS EQUIPMENT
IS HIGHLY SOPHISTICATED, ALL COMPUTER CONTROLLED,
IT’S ALL COMPLETELY ENCLOSED. IT’S NOT THE SAME KIND OF
PROCESSES THAT WERE USED 50 YEARS AGO IN MANUFACTURING. GUILLERMO HERRERA: IT HAS
A DIFFERENT SPEED NOW, IT HAS CHANGED FROM,
IT USED TO BE DIRTY, WE’RE MORE INTO THE AUTOMATION. BILL YANNETTI: THOSE OLD
ROUGH MANUFACTURING JOBS REALLY DON’T EXIST ANYMORE. IT’S ALL COMPUTER CONTROLLED. WE’RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO
CAN USE THEIR MINDS BECAUSE THE MIND IS WHAT YOU NEED
TO TRAIN, NOT YOUR BODY.
