Mechatronics integrates electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, and information technology and computer control systems into a single discipline that crosses most of the traditional boundaries of a skilled technician.  Mechatronics technicians need a broad understanding of how mechanical and electrical energy is produced, controlled and utilized.  The Mechatronics program is designed to teach a core set of technical skills that are applicable in a wide variety of settings.

Mechatronics integrates mechanical, electronic, and information technology into a single discipline that addresses the multi-functional needs of contemporary skilled technicians. The Mechatronics program is designed to teach a core set of technical skills that are applicable in a wide variety of settings. 

The Associate of Applied Science degree, Technical Certificates, and Certificates of Proficiency are designed for employment purposes, and it should not be assumed that the degree or the courses in these programs can be transferred to another institution. While some institutions do accept some courses in A.A.S. programs, the general rule is that courses in A.A.S. degrees are not accepted in transfer toward bachelor's degrees unless that degree has been articulated with that specific institution. Students to whom transfer is important should get assurances in writing in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer.
