Mechatronics, Maintenance and Automation
Mission Critical Operations
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.
Degree and Certificates
Students may pursue a Certificate of Achievement, which includes a core of mechatronics, as well as an Associate of Applied Science -Tranfer degree (AAS-T) in Manufacturing & Process Technology. The Certificate provides students industry recommended skills and knowledge for entry-level positions at a number of local facilities, plants and businesses. The Associate of Applied Science degree builds on the Certificate, allowing students to earn an industry-backed credential while they focus their second year in an area of their choice.
