Engineering Technology w/Emphasis in Mechatronics
Award Type: Associate in ScienceThe associate in science degree offers students a comprehensive program of study in the software, electronics, and mechanics of technologies used in automation (process control), robotics and machine design and maintenance.
The graduate of the Associate in Science in Engineering Technology w/Emphasis in Mechatronics will:
- Demonstrate a fundamental mastery of knowledge and the use of electronic equipment in electrical, digital and analog circuits.
- Use computer simulation and design software to conduct, analyze and interpret electrical, digital and analog circuits.
- Make calculations involving various electrical laws, formulas and principles for predicting circuit parameters using algebra and trigonometry required for electronics.
- Use research strategies to acquire information pertinent to the solution of electronic circuits and systems.
- Write technical laboratory reports with conclusions.
- Demonstrate learned skills with a capstone project requiring you to design, build and evaluate a piece of electronic equipment.
- Apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of automation and control.
A major of 49 units is required for the associate in science degree and certificate.
