The Mechatronics technician ensures all components of a manufacturing operation that includes mechanics, electronics, control engineering and computing are all working properly. Mechatronics may alternately be called electromechanical systems or control and automation engineering/ technician.
Because Mechatronics combines training in two existing fields - Industrial Maintenance and Machine Tool Technology - the multi-craft technician must know how to repair and troubleshoot a variety of systems.
Students earning the Mechatronics diploma will be trained extensively in manufacturing processes with emphasis on accuracy and productivity, utilizing skills in pneumatics, hydraulics, robotics, computer controls and preventive maintenance. Graduates should be well-rounded, multi-craft technicians with the skills required to enter an on-the-job apprentice program.
