Manufacturing and Process Technology

What is “mechatronics” you ask.  It’s the study and practice of integrating traditional tools and equipment with modern technology into a single system.  This may include working with robotics, communications (wired and wireless), electronics, motors, pumps, electricity, pneumatic equipment, hydraulics, and CNC equipment.  

Manufacturing and Process Technology provides students the ability to specialize their training to work in a variety of industry settings in our area including manufacturing facilities, data centers, food or chemical processing plants, and other businesses with need for regular facility or equipment maintenance.
