Technology has advanced the manufacturing process to a point where skilled workers are in high demand to both operate and maintain the wide range of machinery used in parts production today. Our courses will train you in mechanics, automation, robotics, electronics, computer programming, hydraulics, pneumatics, and many other skills you will need to have a successful career in this field. You will learn to operate, test, fine-tune, service and repair equipment that is critically important to any manufacturing company.
The program is aligned with the Siemens Mechatronics Systems Certification Program. Students seeking the Career Certificate can earn their Siemens Level 1 Certification. The two required technical electives could earn additional certifications in robotics (FANUC), Solidworks (CAD), Vision Systsems (Cognex), and/or in Industrial Safety (OSHA 30-hour).
This program is offered in a cohort format with classes during the day and evening. Review the Mechatronics webpage for additional information and course scheduling options.
