Mechatronics
When graduates of the Mechatronics program enter industry, they bring with them the wide range of skills that local and regional employers are seeking.

They have experience with electricity and electronics, pneumatics and hydraulics, sensors and motors, programmable controllers and tool usage. Graduates will be versed in welding, machining, and other manufacturing processes, as well as troubleshooting as it relates to industrial equipment.

The degree includes health and safety instruction and an internship where students develop skills while applying their maintenance knowledge.

This breadth of knowledge and experience will prepare Mechatronics graduates for entry level employment at any facility that requires general maintenance and repair. This would include, but is not limited to manufacturing or any business with automation.
