Explanation:
That would be a mechatronician. Apparently, though, nothing new about it (at least 4 years old upon cursory research).

Explanation:
mechantronics engineer or expert (add explanation of what this is) ---
Dierk is right. The problem is that the term isn't all that widely used, and not everyone knows what it means. For example it's not listed in Schmitt or Wyhlidahl, though mechantronics is listed in Ernst and is explained in the Bosch Automotive Handbook, Ed. 4, page 100

Mechatronics Engineer


Explanation:
The FH-Bochum, where my husband graduated in Nachrichtentechnik, has been churning out Mechatronics Engineers now for a number of years. My husband's company here in the states hires them regularly for internships.
I've never seen the word spelled with an "n" before the t.
Depending on your audience, an explanation might be useful. In many areas, however, this term is already familiar. HTH, Beth.
