Mechatronics - Associate of Applied Science

Mechatronics - Associate of Applied Science

The Mechatronics Technology program prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to repair and maintain industrial machinery and equipment such as cranes, pumps, engines and motors, pneumatic tools, conveyor systems, production machinery, marine deck machinery, steam propulsion, refinery, and pipeline-distribution systems.

Mechatronics are responsible for the engineering of many of the primary devices humans utilize daily. From smartphones, to automobiles, and even the Amazon ordering process, mechatronics are the creative force behind their existence. In addition, they ensure that factories and machinery are operating safely and effectively by conducting both routine and emergency maintenance, while also finding ways to make processes more efficient and effective overall.
