Mechatronics

Mechatronics is a new and rapidly growing field that integrates electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, and information technology and computer control systems into a single discipline that crosses most of the traditional boundaries of a skilled technician.  Mechatronics technicians need a broad understanding of how mechanical and electrical energy is produced, controlled and utilized.  The Mechatronics program is designed to teach a core set of technical skills that are applicable in a wide variety of settings.
