Gainful Employment Information

Length: One-year Program – Two semesters 

Purpose: The program prepares students for entry-level, industry-driven jobs based on the Siemens Certified Mechatronic Systems Assistant job profile and certification requirements. The curriculum follows a systems approach with students learning about individual components and system characteristics around an actual mechatronic system. The program will help meet the need for mid-skilled workers in engineering technology jobs related to electrical and mechanical engineering principles as applied in an advanced manufacturing firm.

Admission Requirements: Students must meet the general admission requirements established by the College.

Program Requirements: Students will complete course work based around electrical components, mechanical components, electrical drives, electro pneumatic and hydraulic control circuits, robotics, safety, Information literacy, digital fundamentals and PLCs. The focus around an actual system enables a student to gain a clear understanding of the concepts and principles being covered, resulting In a fuller understanding of how the systems work and relate. The students completing the program of study will have the opportunity to earn the Siemens Mechatronlc Systems Certification Level l credential and will be award the Career Studies Certificate in Mechatronics.
