Cohort Student Groups

Students working with machinery

You will be one of 15 students who take classes together, study and complete class assignments and work as a team throughout the Mechatronics program. This is called a cohort student group. All of your courses will be scheduled for you, and they are offered in a pre-determined sequence until full completion.

The cohort support group offers an enhanced learning atmosphere that creates a sense of community among the student members of the cohort. Research has shown that students who were part of a cohort experienced higher graduation rates and felt a greater sense of community with the other students in their group.

Benefits to cohorts include:
