Mechatronics is the synergistic
integration of mechanics, electronics, and computer controls with the intent to
design better consumer and industrial products more efficiently and effectively.
With the emergence of new materials, smaller and faster electronics, and
advanced computer controls, products are being designed to seamlessly
incorporate all of these new technologies. Mechatronic technicians are
responsible for integrating and incorporating these inter-disciplinary,
cutting-edge technologies to design these new products.
The Mechatronics Technology
Associate in Applied Science degree program is designed to prepare students for
a career in the inter-disciplinary field of mechatronics design, integrating
CAD, mechanics, electronics, and computer controls. The curriculum incorporates
existing courses from the Mechanical Design and Drafting/CAD, Electronics, and
Information Management Systems career programs. This A.A.S. degree can also be
used to articulate into a Mechatronic Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science
degree program at partner universities.
