Mechatronics Engineering Technology

Program Description

Craven Community College’s Mechatronics Technology curriculum prepares graduates to use basic engineering principles and technical skills in developing and testing automated, servomechanical, and other electromechanical systems. Includes instruction in prototype testing, manufacturing and operational testing, systems analysis, and maintenance procedures.

Students will gain knowledge and hands-on training for the in-demand field of mechatronics, which combines electronics, robotics, mechanics, instrumentation, process control, and industrial automation. Course work includes computer-aided drafting and design, applied mechanics, materials engineering, quality control, manufacturing methods and processes, computer usage, mathematics, physics, and oral and written communications. The courses will stress critical thinking, planning, and problem solving.

Admission Criteria

Admission to this program requires that students be high school graduates or have a recognized equivalency.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Mechatronics Systems Technology program, the graduate should be able to:

  • Maintain, troubleshoot, and repair industrial systems.
  • Maintain a safe work environment.
  • Analyze the interactions between robotic components (mechanical, electrical, and means for programming) to operate and maintain a mechanical system.

Upon completion of the program, graduates can enter the workforce as:

  • Industrial Technicians
  • Maintenance Technicians
  • Technical service providers
  • Process improvement technicians
  • Engineering technicians
  • Industrial technology managers

Transfer Opportunities

While the AAS is a degree leading to immediate job placement upon graduation, Craven Community College has a special relationship for transfer to a BS degree in Industrial Technology with East Carolina University. Please check with an advisor for complete details and opportunities.
