Mechatronics/Robotics Engineering Technology

A course of study that prepares students to use technical skills in developing and testing robots and other automated systems. Includes instruction in Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), 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 examinations. Graduates wil specialize in technician work related to PLC's (Programmable Logic Controllers), robots and three phase power and control.

This project received support from the Golden LEAF Foundation.
