Mechatronics (AAS)

Associate of Applied Science ∙ Program Code: 288 ∙ Credit Hours: 60 - 62 ∙ Contact Hours: 73 - 75 

Dean: James Cousino

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Mechatronics prepares students to design and implement mechatronics systems solutions in automated manufacturing facilities.  Coursework provides the student with an operational understanding of electrical systems, fluid power, motor control, robotics, programmable logic controllers, safety, and quality control and culminates in an integrative design experience.  Application-based learning prepares the student to enter industry to succeed in the highly automated manufacturing environment.

Program Outcomes:  

Upon successful completion of this program, students will possess and exhibit the following core competencies:  

  1. Analyze mechatronics problems by applying knowledge, techniques and modern tools of mathematics, science and engineering.   
  2. Design solutions for mechatronics problems. 
  3. Apply written, oral and graphical communication in technical and non-technical environments;  
  4. Perform standard tests, measurements, and experiments, including interpretation of results. 
  5. Demonstrate behaviors of an effective member of a technical team.
