An emerging field of engineering that integrates electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science, control engineering, and information technology, Mechatronics focuses on the design, development, and application of “smart devices” in production processes utilizing cool tools that produce precision.
Mechatronics is a dynamic field loaded with technological advances and great career for anyone interested in mechanical instrumentation, electronics, robotics, automation, computer system components, and control systems.
As a student of Mechatronics, you will use your hands and your mind to become a maintenance and trouble-shooting technician for top-earning jobs in industrial machinery.
We’ve designed our Mechatronics program to be very flexible by pairing online coursework with labs that can be scheduled at your convenience. ASU Mid-South offers multiple Certificates of Proficiency in Mechatronics covering electrical, mechanical, maintenance and troubleshooting. You can also earn an AAS degree in General Technology with an emphasis on Mechatronics.
The electrical curriculum is geared toward installing, maintaining and troubleshooting circuitry, wiring, programmable logic controllers, electro-fluid power controls, and electronic drive systems. The mechanical curriculum teaches the skills needed to work on hydraulic/pneumatic systems, mechanical drives and bearings, and conveyor systems.
*Certificate of Proficiency in Mechatronics Level 1:
Employers are in great need of skilled maintenance technicians! Enroll in this program and learn what it takes to repair and troubleshoot mechanical and electrical equipment. Successful students will also be able to earn certifications from the Association of Packaging and Processing Technologies (PMMI).
