Mechanical Engineering Technology/Mechatronics Systems
Credential: Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology/Mechatronics Emphasis
D40320M0

The Mechatronics Systems Technology curriculum prepares graduates for employment as technicians in the electro-mechanical field. Mechatronics technicians assist in design, development, testing, process design and improvement, and troubleshooting and repair of engineered systems. Emphasis is placed on the integration of electronics, microprocessors, and mechanical systems.

In addition to coursework in engineering graphics, mechanical and electronic engineering fundamentals, materials and manufacturing processes, students will study computer applications, critical thinking, planning, problem solving, and oral and written Communication.

Graduates of the curriculum should find employment opportunities in the manufacturing or service sectors of engineering technology. Engineering technicians can obtain professional certification by application to organizations such as Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), American Society for Quality Control (ASQC), Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), and National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology (NICET).
