Mechatronics Engineering Technology

Curriculum Description

The Mechatronics Engineering Technology curriculum prepares students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills in developing and testing automated, servo-mechanical, and other electromechanical systems. Includes instruction in prototype testing, manufacturing and operational testing, systems analysis and maintenance procedures. Graduates should be qualified for employment in industrial maintenance and manufacturing including assembly, testing, startup, troubleshooting, repair, process improvement, and control systems, and should qualify to sit for Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) mechatronics or similar industry examination.

Graduates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of various Mechatronics systems

  • Demonstrate basic digital logic principles, design and troubleshooting concepts (ex. Gate logic, digital devices)

  • Mathematically demonstrate basic engineering-related laws and theories (ex. Pascal’s law)

  • ​Perform basic drawing techniques including sketching, lettering dimensioning, geometric construction, and orthographic projections

  • Perform preventive maintenance on various industrial systems involving electronics, PLCs, robotics, sensors, actuators, fluid mechanics, instrumentation, and controls

  • ​Demonstrate techniques used in troubleshooting problems in mechatronics systems

  • Effectively describe the function of components used in closed loop systems
