Introduction to the job

Lead a team of engineers and help solve complex challenges in the semiconductor industry. As a mechatronics architect you define the mechatronics architecture on system level or the architecture of a mechatronics module, including interfaces to other modules.

Role and responsibilities

You’ll be responsible for the design of the mechatronics architecture or function of a mechatronic module. You’ll work in multidisciplinary project teams, together with the mechanical, electrical, and software departments.As mechatronics architect you balance performance, costs, manufacturability and serviceability. You specify, design, make the technical budget analysis, select critical components, and you are involved in integration, test planning, test execution, and trouble shooting.
