About the Program

Mechatronics technicians design and maintain automated equipment. They conduct their work in laboratories, offices, or on-site at manufacturing plants. Mechatronics technicians apply their knowledge of electrical, mechanical, and computer systems to solve technical problems and maintain automated equipment. They work alongside engineers and scientists, often assisting in the research and development aspects of production. Technicians are needed in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, construction, agriculture, and aerospace.

MTC’s Mechatronics Technology program is a two-year associate degree program that prepares students to work in highly automated manufacturing environments. The program reflects the needs of local industries and includes mechanical components, industrial electricity and electronics, programmable logic controllers (PLC), hydraulics and pneumatics, as well as an introduction to process control. The program is scheduled to let students work part-time while they build multi-craft skills that lead to great jobs and career advancement.

Successful candidates usually have reasonable math skills and enjoy working with their hands to make or repair industrial equipment.  Most of the graduates are entering careers in industrial maintenance so the ability to move about the shop and lift components weighing around 30 pounds.
