The word mechatronics describes a field that combines mechanics and electronics. The technology is used to create automated processes that operate with minimal human intervention, freeing workers from routine tasks.
Many electronic goods are manufactured using automated processes. Both the end product and the manufacturing equipment that creates them need trained technicians and engineers for development and maintenance.
Mechatronics jobs might require external design of a product, the electronic circuits on the inside, or the automated equipment that assembles the product. Applications include a wide variety of manufacturing and robotics-driven processes as well as business fields with complex computer systems such as banking and commerce.
Our hands-on Mechatronics program prepares you to go to work as an entry-level service technician, diagnosing, servicing and repairing automated systems. Mechatronics is also an excellent skill-set supplement to related areas such as electronics and engineering.
Mechatronic systems are used in many technologies and industries, including:
