The Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Technology with a concentration in Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics provides the graduate the skills to work within a complex manufacturing system while assessing and analyzing the system as a whole. This degree will prepare technicians for occupations which combine the diverse fields of mechanical, electrical, and programmed automation and prepare students for the new breed of industrial careers where technicians manage, investigate, troubleshoot and repair mechatronic systems.
This program articulates with one or more institutions or agencies. Refer to the Articulation Agreements section of the catalog for further detail.
Upon completion of the Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Technology with concentration in Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics, the student will be able to:
- apply the principles of electronics, mechanics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), industrial sensors and actuators;
- demonstrate a combination of practical skills and applied theory to design, modify, and troubleshoot complex mechatronic systems that are used to produce a wide variety of products;
- recognize and apply measurement and inspection methods used in manufacturing systems;
- perform effectively in manufacturing environments utilizing casting, forming, machining, plastic injection molding, and welding processes;
- demonstrate use of lean manufacturing techniques, six sigma tools, and quality systems as applied to manufacturing systems;
- interact with engineers, programmers, managers, and other technical professionals in the field; and
- identify and operate programmable logic controllers (PLCs) covering installation, programming, and maintaining PLC systems.
