Industrial Mechatronics, SC

This is a draft edition of the 2024-2025 catalog. Information is subject to change.

Program Description

The Skills Certificate, Industrial Mechatronics will instruct students on foundational and intermediate components of electrical, fluid, and mechanical power, and their applications in the field of manufacturing. These three components are commonly utilized in concert with one another on production lines as part of an automated process that individuals entering the field will be expected to comprehend and provide service in the event of faults.

This program is not eligible for financial aid. However, it may be eligible for scholarship funding if the student is awarded scholarships.
