Mechatronics II Certificate in Applied Science
This certificate further develops students completing Mechatronics I as well as advanced students already working in the industry in areas such as, but not limited to, robotics, PLC and applications, sensors and controllers, troubleshooting and process controls.
This is a new interdisciplinary field involving control systems, electronic systems, computers, robotics and mechanical systems.
Courses taken in this certificate can be applied toward the associate degree program. The Mechatronics Level 2 Certificate builds on the Level 1 Certificate. The program will provide students with knowledge in the industrial automated manufacturing technology area. The student will develop basic foundational skills and understanding in electronics, robotics, motors, motor drives and programmable logic controllers. In addition, basic troubleshooting strategies will be developed on an automated manufacturing line.
The Mechatronics program mission, to produce students who are ready for today's advanced manufacturing jobs, furthers the college's mission to transform students' lives through world-class education in a field that has seen significant growth in our community.
