What is Mechatronics Technology A.A.S.?

EXPECTED HOURS FOR A.A.S. DEGREE: 60

Mechatronics Technology is a blend of mechanical, electrical and computerized technologies that together form a complex system used by many manufacturing, packaging, and other modern operations. Students will develop skills to work as a technician in an integrated, multidisciplinary industrial environment and will acquire the knowledge and hands-on training in electronics, mechanics, and computers to work in a variety of industrial and manufacturing related businesses.

Skills emphasized in the program include troubleshooting techniques, system preventative maintenance and safety with respect to electrical components, mechanical components and electric motors, pneumatic and hydraulic controls, and PLCs used in mechatronics systems. Students successfully completing this program can manage, investigate, repair and troubleshoot mechatronic systems, with the aim of operational efficiency and cost and process control.
