Introduction to Automation and Mechatronics
Mechatronics is equal parts mechanical, electrical, and software engineering merged to design, build and operate products. Automation and Mechatronics engineering is an inter-disciplinary field that integrates mechanical systems with electronics, control, and computer technologies. This field combines mechanical system design and analysis with process control, networking, and computer software. In this level one, entry level program we will cover all the essential prerequisite skills and knowledge necessary for working in this growing industry. We have broken down the training into multiple sections that will cover all areas from the basics of reading blueprints and schematics to introductions of mechanics and electronics. This program will explore the basic knowledge required for any manufacturing or industrial occupation such as hand tools, safety and health, and troubleshooting. With no previous exposure or knowledge required, this program is a great start to pursuing a career in mechatronics and automation and with our intermediate and advanced training options you can continue to advance your knowledge and skills to gain advancement in your career.
