Mechatronics and Industrial Technology, A.A.S.


The combination of mechanical, electrical, and electronic skillsets is in great demand at start-of-the-art manufacturers today. This combination of disciplines is also known as mechatronics. The Mechatronics and Industrial Technology program provides a sequence of technical and manufacturing courses for students who are currently in, or plan to enter, today’s mechatronics and industrial technology environment where multi-skilled workers are in high demand. This A.A.S. program is a career degree, preparing students for the workforce after graduation. However, students can opt to transfer to a four-year program rather than start a career, but should confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements.

The Industrial Technology, Certificate  is a stack-able credential that is completely compatible with this program. The Electronics Technician, Certificate  (ETC) is also a stack-able credential towards this program. The ETC does include one course (ELE 101 ), however, which is not required for the AMS program. 

Program Student Learning Outcomes: 

  1. Identify typical tools and properly use a variety of devices including precision measurement.

  2. Perform data collection and evaluation for equipment used in the industrial environment.

  3. Maintain, troubleshoot, and document a variety of systems.

  4. Recognize standard safety practices, procedures, and personal protection equipment.
