What is the program about?

This program prepares students for a career in Mechatronics by developing electrical and mechanical skills for developing, installing and troubleshooting complex mechanical and electrical systems. The degree includes traditional classroom instruction, hands-on laboratory experiences and on-the-job training through an internship course every semester. Note: This program is restricted to employees of FESTO Corporation.

Program Outcomes

  • Safely perform basic operation of manual mills, lathes and grinders.
  • Conduct simple mechanical repairs on typical electromechanical systems, from replacing wiring, fluid power valving, piping, electromechanical devices, and other items that were original to the equipment, to installing new system modifications, then returning the system to operational specifications.
  • Diagnose electronic system problems using appropriate test instrumentation, schematics, and technical reference manuals; determine if fault is electrical, electronic, software, or mechanical in nature. Recommend appropriate repair process and initiate repair.
  • Repair electrical and electronic systems, from devices, subsystems, wiring/cabling to circuit board level, and return to correct operation after testing.

Career Opportunities

Students are employable as Mechatronics technicians, qualified to operate and repair a variety of mechanical and electrical systems.
