Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing
The Mechatronics/ Advanced Manufacturing program of study is designed to prepare students for the growing field of mechatronics, manufacturing and industrial robotics. Mechatronics is a blending of electrical and mechanical engineering and design. It is a study of the design of “intelligent” systems to achieve improved product quality and performance. On this inquiry-grounded project-based learning course, students act as engineers, designing, analyzing, and building systems that automate industrial processes.
The practicum in Mechatronics includes a non-paid, campus-based internship, or a paid off-campus internship with an industry partner where the student can begin earning real-world experience. Students will be provided opportunities to obtain four or more certifications, one per course.
The Mechatronics/ Advanced Manufacturing program of study is currently available and open for enrollment at Career Institute North and the Career Institute South.
