- More Information about Mechatronics Engineering Technology
Mechatronics Engineering Technology offers a multidisciplinary curriculum that provides students with the diverse skill set required to install, calibrate, modify, troubleshoot, repair, and maintain automated systems. Hands-on instruction develops skills in mechanical, electrical, electronic, fluid power, and automated control systems. Graduates are prepared for technical positions in a wide range of industries.
Instrumentation technology/technician, robotics technology/technician, automation engineer technology/technician, electro-mechanical technician, industrial engineering technician, process technician, petroleum technician, industrial maintenance technician, field automation technician, and pipeline/distribution operator.
Recommended High School Subjects
Math, science, programming, all skilled electrical and mechanical vocational programs.
All entering students will be tested for English, math, and reading deficiencies. Students are expected to remediate any deficiencies as explained in the College Catalog (www.pct.edu/catalog/PlacementTesting.htm). Students with two or more developmental needs will be required to satisfy those needs before proceeding with the technical courses in this major. Minimum-level math required to begin the technical courses is MTH006.
This major is subject to the transfer standards established by the College. Exceptions must be approved by the school dean.
A graduate of this major should be able to:
- demonstrate safe work habits in performance of maintenance tasks.
- write clear, concise, and accurate technical reports.
- use appropriate interpersonal, verbal, and written communications to promote the goals and objectives of a team.
- demonstrate basic electrical/electronic circuit troubleshooting skills.
