Mechatronics Technology


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs and Areas of Study

The Mechatronics Technology program focuses on the integration of mechanical, electrical (electronics), fluid power (hydraulics or pneumatics), and computer technologies to control machine movements. The students’ studies begin with courses in mechanics, sensors, basic electronics, pneumatics, control logic, and robot programming and control.

The program is not directly aimed at specific products. With the multiplicity of equipment presently in use and the rapid advance and change in technology, the department stresses the development of a broad background that will enable students to find employment and be able to further their skills in a diversified number of industries.

Protective shop clothing and eye protection supplies required for the program will be purchased by the student.

All courses are not offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students who satisfactorily complete all college and program requirements qualify for an associate of applied science degree.
