Mechatronics Engineering Technology

College of Technology, Architecture, and Applied Engineering

Department of Engineering Technology
264 Technology Building, 419-372-2439

Mechatronics Engineering Technology program prepares graduates for successful careers and expertise in a broad spectrum of the field in the area associated with the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and management of advanced mechatronics systems. The program will produce graduates that are prepared for successful careers in the area associated with the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and oversight of advanced mechatronics systems. The field of Mechatronics Engineering Technology depends heavily on the integration of electrical, mechanical, computer, and network components to the design, application, operation, and maintenance of electromechanical systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • Use computer-aided drafting or design tools to prepare graphical representations of electromechanical systems;
  • Use circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, basic instrumentation, and computers to aid in the characterization, analysis, and troubleshooting of electromechanical systems;
  • Use statics, dynamics (or applied mechanics), strength of materials, engineering materials, engineering standards, and manufacturing processes to aid in the characterization, analysis, and troubleshooting of electromechanical systems;
  • Use appropriate computer programming languages for operating electromechanical systems;
  • Use electrical/electronic devices such as amplifiers, motors, relays, power systems, and computer and instrumentation systems for applied design, operation, or troubleshooting electromechanical systems;
  • Use advanced topics in engineering mechanics, engineering materials, and fluid mechanics for applied design, operation, or troubleshooting of electromechanical systems;
  • Use basic knowledge of control systems for the applied design, operation, or troubleshooting of electromechanical systems;
  • Use differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the static and dynamic performance of electromechanical systems; and
  • Use appropriate management techniques in the investigation, analysis, and design of electromechanical systems.
