Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Plans

The Mechatronics Engineering Technology curriculum prepares individuals for jobs requiring electrical, mechanical, and computer skills necessary to work on complex systems found in manufacturing environments. Students in the program will gain knowledge and hands-on training for the in-demand field of mechatronics, which combines electricity, electronics, robotics, mechanics instrumentation, process control and industrial automation.


Students will learn multi-craft technical skills in blueprint reading, mechanical systems, electrical/electronic systems, hydraulics/pneumatics, and automation.


Through alignment with PMMI’s (Packaging Machinery Manufactures Institute) Mechatronics Certification Program, ACC’s Associate of Applied Science degree in Mechatronics Engineering Technology offers a set of stackable credentials recognized by the US Department of Labor and endorsed by the National Association of Manufacturer’s’ skills.
