Shannon based Modular Automation have partnered with IT Sligo on their Mechatronics Work-Based Engineering Degree.
Located in Smithstown Industrial Estate, the engineering technology company design and build innovative automation equipment for leading medtech blue-chip manufacturers such as Stryker, Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, and Edwards Lifesciences. They are now looking for students to join their engineering team.
The new programme is designed to develop a highly skilled Mechatronics Engineer with multidisciplinary automation experience. It gives students the opportunity to get into the workplace quickly and earn as they learn, all while training to become a highly skilled Mechatronics Engineer.
They will be learning from and working alongside Modular’s skilled team carrying out the design, assembly, testing and validation of automation equipment for the medtech sector. They will gain experience on a wide range of technologies and robots, and there will be a different challenge and something new to learn every day.
Three days a week working at Modular’s Shannon campus is part of the programme. This includes rotations across their Engineering Departments, while studying online 2 days per week on the Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronic Systems with IT Sligo. Once qualified as a Mechatronics Engineer there will be an opportunity to progress to Modular Automation’s Graduate Programme or be supported further to complete an Honours Degree in Mechatronics.
Modular is searching for students with a strong academic record that includes project work in STEM subjects, and strong results in Leaving Certificate Maths is a must. The programme is a great option for those who have a keen interest in Engineering and quickly getting into the workplace.
