Automated Systems Technology - Mechatronics

The new face of manufacturing

Command central

The new manufacturing industry is a dynamic, interconnected network of technical know-how.  It’s fast-paced, precise and never boring.

As a highly skilled mechatronics technician, you’ll be at the center of all of it.

Imagine coordinating mechanical, electrical and computer-controlled robotics into one unified function that drives the manufacturing process and produces a superior product.

Forget Jack of all trades. You’ll be a master of all of them!

Automated Systems Technology - Mechatronics

Industry-driven training

Our Mechatronics faculty work with manufacturers to ensure that when you complete our program, you’re ready to go to work for them.

You’ll train in state-of-the art labs on the same systems, software and equipment that’s used in the industry. 

That means you’ll work with electrical sensors, semiconductors, robotic programmers, hydraulics, pneumatics, microcontrollers and the list goes on.

You’ll even use a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to write and troubleshoot programs for an actual assembly line that manufactures a product that you’ll be able to hold in your hands. 

Choose to earn a certificate or an associate degree with confidence that you’ll be up to speed on the latest manufacturing technology and that the credits earned will transfer if you decide to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
