The focus of the Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. As technology advances, the subfields of engineering multiply and adapt. Mechatronics’ aim is a design process that unifies these subfields. Originally, mechatronics just included the combination of mechanics and electronics, hence the word is a combination of mechanics and electronics; however, as technical systems have become more and more complex the definition has been broadened to include more technical areas. We also include robotics, 3D design in Autocad, 3D printing, Pneumatics design and control, Programmable logic controller, and much, much more.
Prerequisites include Alegebra I with a C or better and Computer Applications I. Opportunities in Dual Credit with State Fair Community College, Articulation agreement with State Technical College.
