Mechatronics Certificate

The Mechatronics Certificate (formerly Mechanical/Electrical Maintenance) prepares graduates for technical positions in the expanding field of electrical/mechanical systems installation and service. A person interested in pursuing education and employment in this area should have high mechanical aptitude. This program is also intended for the individual who wishes to upgrade skills or to prepare for a career as a multi-skilled maintenance technician. The Mechatronics Certificate provides the student the opportunity to earn a certificate, enter the workforce and then continue towards an Associate Degree without losing potential wages. Students wishing to pursue an Associate Degree should discuss this desire with their advisor to ensure no loss of credit.
