Advanced Automation and Mechatronics
Mechatronic technicians utilize their skills and knowledge of engineering to maintain automated systems and problem solve technical issues. The work alongside mechatronic engineers to research, create, and implement improved automation systems and equipment to increase production. Technicians are needed in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, construction, agriculture and aerospace. In this level three, advanced level program we will explore troubleshooting techniques for multiple systems including hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical as well as different maintenance areas. This program will provide training in advanced safety, calibration, and testing procedures along with knowledge in oxyfuel and arc welding operations. Professionals evaluating this program should have previous training or experience in automation and mechatronics including skills in mechanics, electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics, circuits, and power supplies. Individuals that do not have the previous training or knowledge are invited to complete our introductory and intermediate programs. With this advanced program you will be prepared to seek a career in automation and mechatronics as a technician or maintenance specialist. This program is also a great start to pursuing a mechatronic engineer degree.
