The Mechatronics Engineering Technology (MET) program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to succeed in industries utilizing robotics and automated systems while preparing them for transfer into four-year engineering and/or engineering technology programs.
The program combines disciplines such as robotics, computer networking, automated controls, mechanics, and fluid power utilized in manufacturing and production facilities.
Industries that hire MET graduates with the skill sets learned in this program include; manufacturing, pharmaceutical, food production, energy, defense, and agriculture.
A MET program graduate may work performing installations, troubleshooting, repairing, and programming for automated systems, or may fulfill the roles of an entry-level engineering technician.
A Mechatronics Engineering Technology student will experience a combination of lecture and lab classes with knowledgeable instructors, using hands-on real-world applications and scenarios which will prepare the student for a lifelong career while preparing for follow-on education of four-year institution, if desired.
