Mechatronics Engineering Technology

The Mechatronics curriculum prepares the students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills in developing and testing automated, servo-mechanical, robotic, and other electromechanical systems used in advanced manufacturing. Includes instruction in prototype testing, manufacturing and operational testing, systems analysis and maintenance procedures.

These curriculums are designed to prepare students through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes based on these subjects. Course work includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology.

Graduates should be qualified for employment in industrial maintenance and manufacturing including assembly, testing, startup, troubleshooting, repair, process improvement, and control systems, and should qualify to sit for Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) mechatronics or similar industry examinations.
