Mechatronics

Mechatronics comes from mixing the words "mechanical" and "electronics". As a Mechatronics student, you will find many ways separate systems work together to make "smart" devices. Take classes related to the Internet of Things, machines, electronics, electrical motor controls, sensors, and programmable logic controls.

The skills taught include electrical, mechanical and computer technologies. Mechatronics technicians assist design, development and engineering staff to install, maintain, modify and repair mechatronic systems, equipment and component parts. The program combines academic training with hands-on activities.

The Mechatronics program responds to a new and emerging career that trains technicians with “multi-craft” skills to work on robotic and “intelligent” equipment ranging from ATM machines to multi-million-dollar manufacturing cells. The skills taught include electrical, mechanical, and computer technologies. Mechatronics technicians will assist the design, development and engineering staff, and install, maintain, modify and repair mechatronic systems, equipment and component parts. The program combines academic training with hands-on activities.
