Mechatronics Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Technology - Mechatronics Engineering Technology 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, automation and management of advanced mechatronics and robotics system technologies. The program will produce graduates ready for the workforce of Tomorrow that are prepared for successful careers in the areas associated with the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and oversight of advanced manufacturing factories.

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.

Career Opportunities

Mechatronics and roboticist professionals are the technologists and engineers who design, integrate and maintain automated and intelligent systems toward producing safe and efficient systems to support the digital industry. These professionals conduct their work in laboratories, offices or on-site at manufacturing plants.

The graduates of our program are mechatronics engineering technologists who are prepared to fill industrial positions in robotics and automation areas directly related to process control, electronic instrumentation, testing, manufacturing, sales, and service. Typical engineering technologist's duties may include analysis and design of process control equipment, laboratory testing services, product sales and service, applications engineering, and the development of systems that require a hardware/ software interface.

According to U.S Bureau of Labor Statics, the median salary of mechatronics engineering technologists ranged from $82k-$95k for bachelor degree holders, and $52k-$59k for associate degree holders.
