The Robotics and Mechatronics program is for students who want robotics and ultra-fast automated systems to be a part of their future. Mechatronics, the combination of electrical systems, mechanical systems and computer systems, is at the center of manufacturing and factory automation. This program prepares students to combine basic engineering principles and technical ability for a strong skills toolkit. They will learn to design, develop, test and manufacture electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems, such as robotic assembly machines and package handling systems.
Program Concentrations:• Calculation of common ratios for transfer of power in mechanized systems• Industrial, electrical and electronic systems repair• Industrial robot programming• Motor, air and fluid power systems• Programmable logic controllers (PLC) for factory automation
You can become a technician or engineer in any of these fields: process engineering technology, electro-mechanical systems, robotics, mechanical engineering, mechanical drafting, machine assembly and more.
