The term Mechatronics originally was a fusion of the words mechanical and electronics. The modern use of the term Mechatronics addresses the four interconnected disciplines used in the design, operation, and maintenance of all modern, complex machinery. These four disciplines are mechanical, electrical/electronics, motor control systems, and computer science/information technology. The courses selected for this degree offer learning in all of these areas to prepare a student for positions as manufacturing or maintenance technicians, inspectors, testers, or process control technicians. This program will also prepare students for entry into a Baccalaureate Degree program in this field.
