Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study (A to Z)

Schoolcraft program code # AAS.00226

The mechatronics 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.

Students who satisfactorily complete all college and program requirements qualify for an associate in applied science degree.

Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
