Purpose: Mechatronics is the combination of electrical, mechanical, and software technologies used in today’s industry. Students who complete the Mechatronics program will acquire a skill-set highly sought by many such as: manufacturing, packaging, automated distribution warehouses, and biomedical equipment companies, to name a few. If a process or product has a “line” or “moving parts”, chances are there is a need for a mechatronics technician to keep it operating at peak performance. Ideal candidates for the program are those who like to work with their hands, troubleshoot and prefer moving about as opposed to sitting at a desk.
