Mechatronics Technology (MECT)

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Mechatronics Technology prepares students for positions in the high tech manufacturing workplace through a combination of courses in electrical systems, mechanical systems and motors, hydraulics, pneumatics and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).  The program is aligned with two major industry certifications (Siemens 1 and 2).  Students have the option (through technical electives) to earn additional certifications in robotics (FANUC CERT) and in Industrial Safety (OSHA 30-hour), and in LabVIEW programming (Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer, CLAD).
