Mechatronics I, II, III

Certificates​

Mechatronics I - Fundamentals Certificate

17 SEMESTER HOURS
This certificate is designed to prepare students for entry-level Industrial Maintenance positions, with cross-over to Electrical and Instrumentation positions. The Fundamentals aspect of Mechatronics prepares the student by introducing a broad range of courses that peaks the interest of the learner, while expanding their industrial knowledge including Electrical, Mechanical, and Computer Science. The Mechatronics I Fundamentals Certificate is the best starting point for most students new to industrial maintenance or for students preparing to achieve an Associate’s degree in Mechatronics. Job opportunities may include, but are not limited to Process and Manufacturing Maintenance, along with Electrical or Mechanical Apprentice, or Construction Site Maintenance.

Mechatronics II - Automated Controls Certificate

19 SEMESTER HOURS
This certificate is designed to prepare students for entry-level, intermediate-level, or higher-level Industrial Maintenance positions, with cross-over to Electrical and Instrumentation positions. The Automated Controls aspect of Mechatronics prepares the student by introducing a broad range of manufacturing tactics, along with manufacturing theory including Electrical, Mechanical, and Computer Science. The Mechatronics II Automated Controls Certificate is the best starting point for most students that have a basic knowledge of industrial maintenance or have completed Mechatronics Certificate I - Fundamentals. Job opportunities may include, but are not limited to Process Plant and Manufacturing Maintenance, Construction Maintenance including Electrical and Mechanical.

Mechatronics III - Advanced Automated Systems Certificate

19 SEMESTER HOURS
This certificate is designed to prepare students for entry-level, senior-level, or advanced-level Industrial Maintenance positions, with cross-over to Electrical, Automation and Instrumentation positions. The Automated Systems aspect of Mechatronics prepares the student by introducing an advanced level of manufacturing tactics, along with advanced manufacturing theory involving Electrical, Mechanical, and Computer Science. The Mechatronics III Advanced Automated Systems Certificate is the best starting point for most students that have entry-level to senior-level knowledge of industrial manufacturing and industrial maintenance or have completed Mechatronics Certificate II – Automated Controls.
