PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

Mechatronics is essentially about engineering, computer hardware, software and network systems and how they interface, in an integrated manner, to produce a consistent and functional outcome.

The primary skills that are recognized by this qualification include the ability to:
  • Construct simple parts within given tolerances.
  • Install, test and maintain basic electrical circuits.
  • Construct and test electronic circuits.

    Entrants into a technical work and learning environment need to be exposed to both the theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline. These capabilities require an understanding of basic electrical and electronic theory, engineering drawings and electrical circuit diagrams and concepts of measurement, and an ability to join engineering materials, use tools and use a computer. Hand skills play a large role in this qualification.

    On completion, qualifying learners are able to:
  • Join engineering materials.
  • Use engineering tools (hand and power), equipment.
  • Operate a computer.

    The Qualifying learner will be able to:
  • Assemble mechanical components.
  • Construct and test basic electronic circuits.
  • Install, test, maintain and commission basic electrical circuits.
  • Keep the work area safe and productive.
  • Mark off basic engineering shapes.
  • Use a Graphical User Interface based word processor to format documents.
  • Perform basic welding/join metals.
  • Read, interpret and produce basic engineering drawings.
  • Select, use and care for engineering hand tools.
  • Select, use and care for engineering measuring equipment.
  • Select, use and care for engineering power tools.
  • Explain and apply an understanding of basic digital circuits.

    Through this qualification the learner gains competencies required for entry level work, as a technical assistant, in most fields of engineering.

    What learners achieve in this Qualification will also serve as the basis for further learning where they will engage more directly in the installation, maintenance and commissioning of Mechatronic systems.

    Rationale:

    This manufacturing industry is characterised by technologically sophisticated automation processes using Computerised Integrated Manufacturing systems (CIM's) that integrate the fields of mechanical, electrical, electronic, engineering, control and information technology. The field of Mechatronics deals with the installation, maintenance and commissioning of such CIM systems that must conform to all safety aspects, as per regulation and legislation. People working in the Mechatronics field require specialized technical skills and knowledge, as well as highly developed hand skills to enable them to install, maintain and commission mechatronic systems.

    This is the first Qualification in a series for learners who want to follow a career in Mechatronics. This series reflects the skills, knowledge and understanding required to perform effectively in industry, whether in micro, small, medium or large enterprises.

    The NQF Level 2 Qualification is foundational in nature. It seeks to develop the necessary foundational theoretical, practical skills and orientation that learners require as the basis for further learning in the field of Mechatronics. It introduces the learner to key concepts that will be useful at higher levels in the qualification series.

    In the South African context in line with global trends there is a growing need for technical workers from the lowest elementary levels of mechanised manufacturing to the highest level of sophisticated specialised work in robotics. For example motor manufacturers and other mechanised mass manufacturers are increasingly reliant on employees that are competent in the integrated fields that make up the field of Mechatronics. The fact that global players for example in the motor industry are increasingly using South Africa as a manufacturing base for export purposes is indicative of the continued growth outlook in the long-term. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This Qualification assumes that learners are already competent in Communication and Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 1 or equivalent.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This Qualification can be achieved wholly or in part through Recognition of Prior Learning. Whether a learner attends formal courses or acquires the required skills through informal means, competency must be shown in the Unit Standard as set out in the rules of combination and in the Exit Level Outcomes of the Qualification.

    The Qualification and the Unit Standards have been written in such a way that the learning has to be assessed in an integrated way. Assessors will assess evidence to establish what the learners know, understand and can do. Such evidence may be gathered through course related activities and/or through work related activities. In cases where learners do not attend formal learning programs, assessors should seek work related evidence as far as possible.

    Assessors should ensure that learners submitting themselves to RPL are thoroughly briefed prior to assessment. Learners may be required to submit a Portfolio of Evidence in the prescribed format to be assessed for formal recognition.

    Access to the Qualification:

    Access is open.

    5.4 The ability to summarise information is demonstrated in written and spoken form.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment evaluates the learner's ability to combine actions and ideas across a range of activities and knowledge areas. The integrated assessment must specifically assess the learner's ability to:
  • Demonstrate competence by means of the practical application of the embedded knowledge in a manner that meets the required performance standards.
  • Illustrate a clear understanding of the concepts, theory and principles that underpin the practical action taken.

    The assessment will require assessment methods which measure and evaluate evidence generated during learning and on-the-job activities. Because assessment practices must be open and transparent, fair, valid and reliable; ensuring that no leaner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the Qualification.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working or will work. Where it is not possible to assess the learner at the workplace, simulations, case studies role plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    The term integrated assessment implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the Unit Standards should be integrated and, during integrated assessment, the assessor should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment tools and methods. Combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies should be assessed. Assessment should further ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and Critical Cross Field Outcomes are evaluated in an integrated way.

    Assessors must assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience as the assessment process is capable of being applied to RPL, subject to the rules and criteria of the relevant ETQA. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The comparative review is made from leading technology countries that have a competitive edge in Mechatronics, namely the United Kingdom (UK), the United States of America (USA) and Germany. The language barrier made it a challenge to access training in countries like Japan and South Korea.

    In this international comparability survey, the various ways of achieving a Mechatronics qualification and the various course configuration sets are reviewed. Comparable aspects of the various programs in terms of entry requirements, credits awarded, approaches to learning and work, as well as Exit Level Outcomes are highlighted.
