Mechatronics

About

The Mechatronics technician ensures all components of a manufacturing operation that includes mechanics, electronics, control engineering, and computing are working properly. Mechatronics may also be called electromechanical systems or control and automation engineering/technician. Mechatronics combines training in two existing fields - Industrial Maintenance and Mechatronics - the technician must know how to repair and troubleshoot a variety of systems. Students earning the Mechatronics diploma will be trained extensively in manufacturing processes with emphasis on accuracy and productivity utilizing skills in pneumatics, hydraulics, robotics, computer controls and preventive maintenance. Instructors emphasize proactive maintenance rather than reactive maintenance. Graduates will be well-rounded, multi-craft technicians with skills required to enter an on-the-job apprenticeship program.
