Mechatronics is the field of study that produces operators, technicians, and engineers who are qualified to support sophisticated automation systems. Mechatronics workers must have knowledge of various automation components and also have an understanding of the integration of these components into a system. Skills and knowledge of electricity, electronics, PLC, robotics, mechanics, including fluid power principles are all necessary to have the competences necessary to troubleshoot, maintain, and repair various types of automation systems. As manufacturing industries strive to be successful in a highly competitive environment, they are increasing their use of more sophisticated automation systems. These systems frequently involve higher speeds, more precision, and integration of IT networks.

 

The WSCC Mechatronics Program is available in an Open-Entry/Open-Exit (OE/OE) format allowing for enrollment at any time throughout the year. Employers have great flexibility in building training programs by ala carte selection of modules from a menu of skill sets. Students have an increased ability to work while earning a college degree since the hours of delivery are modeled to fit work schedules, including both online and hands-on training.
