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, and tool usage. Graduates will be versed in welding and other manufacturing processes, as well as troubleshooting as it relates to industrial equipment. At Highland, students have hands-on lab experience with robotics, circuits, and more.
Work in this field of study would include, but is not limited to, fabrication, food processing, distribution, or any business that utilizes automation.
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.
