This degree program is designed for both the new student entering the field of machine maintenance and for the current maintenance employee who wishes to learn more about the knowledge and skills currently in demand by employers.
A graduate of the program will be prepared for entry into the maintenance field as a mechatronics technician or assistant. Instruction covers the basic energy types that animate and/or control machinery. These energy types are mechanical energy (solids), hydraulics, pneumatics and electrical. The student will become familiar with machinery components that conduct, control and apply the various energy types, their related graphic symbols, and the blueprints and schematics which utilize them for graphic communication.
The courses will examine, explain and utilize basic analytical methods and concepts that are critical to safely and efficiently work in the dynamic high energy world of industrial machinery.
Credit for hours of training is usually granted to those entering an approved apprenticeship program. Entry into the program at any time is possible on a space-available basis with instructor’s permission.
