Hire the best, every time, anywhere
Testlify helps you identify the best talent from anywhere in the world, with a seamless experience that candidates and hiring teams love every step of the way.
Knowledge of the mechanical & electrical machine components, their operations, the technology involved, and the activities that should be carried out for efficient working and maintenance are a must for any mechatronics engineer. These are assessed by queries on a machine’s structural and process terminology, calculation of required variables using data obtained from the devices, and equations used to describe the relevant vectors in its operation.
Electronic Systems & Devices
A mechatronics engineer should know about the electronic devices that are part of automated industry tools or machines. Candidates are assessed on the design and functionalities of digital control systems, circuit boards, sensor semiconductors, actuators, computer hardware processors, programming using languages for simulation and analysis, etc.
Mathematical & Analytical Methods
The ability to analyze problem statements involving mechanical or electronic devices and use mathematical tools to obtain necessary solutions are tested. Applicants are given numerical questions that require the application of advanced electromechanical engineering concepts for finding variables like force, pressure, temperature, device parameters, etc.
System Power & Accuracy
Mechatronics combines technology from various fields to create intelligent systems that solve industry problems and provide automated solutions. Candidates are queried on the power and accuracy of such systems and are asked to calculate parameters for different use case scenarios.
The test is created by a subject-matter expert
Testlify’s skill tests are designed by experienced SMEs (subject matter experts). We evaluate these experts based on specific metrics such as expertise, capability, and their market reputation. Prior to being published, each skill test is peer-reviewed by other experts and then calibrated based on insights derived from a significant number of test-takers who are well-versed in that skill area. Our inherent feedback systems and built-in algorithms enable our SMEs to refine our tests continually.
