Robotics and Mechatronics

Robotics and Mechatronics

There is a demand for multi-skilled technicians in today’s industry. The Mechatronics program is designed to meet these industry needs. Mechatronics is the synergy, or blending, of multiple  engineering disciplines. In the Mechatronics program students will learn the competencies necessary to meet the demands of industry that require technicians to be multi-skilled in several areas including robotics, electronics/electrical, mechanics, pneumatics, and programming. Students will be given the opportunity to learn how to read schematics, wire and install fluid circuits, develop logical processing and troubleshooting skills through theory and hands-on applications.

Students who are interested in careers in industrial settings and hands-on applications will learn the basic concepts necessary to design, build, maintain, troubleshoot and integrate robots and other automated systems.
