Mechatronics Technology

Design products that exhibit fast and precise performance by considering not only the mechanical design, but also the use of servo controls, sensors, and electronics. Mechatronic devices or “smart” devices have become common in our technologically advanced society. Mechatronic engineers can work in any company that develops, designs, or manufactures and markets “smart” devices. Examples include: robots, anti-lock brakes, photocopiers, computer disk drives, and humidity sensitive clothes dryers and windshield wipers. Mechatronic devices can be found in medicine and surgery, agriculture, buildings, homes, automobiles, the toy and entertainment industry, and intelligent aids for the elderly and disabled.

The Mechatronics Technology program is designed to provide graduates with a high-tech skill set and knowledge in electronic, mechanical, fluid power/pneumatic systems, electrical, Program Logic Controller applications (PLC) programming, computer technology for maintenance and repair of PLC/computer controlled, automated machines and robotic systems.
