Engineering Technology/Mechatronics, Associate in Applied Science

Curriculum ENT.MEC.AAS (C249V)

The Engineering Technology curriculum provides the learner with working knowledge of engineering technology, including basic and advanced drafting and design principles using various 2D and 3D Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) systems, integrating lean principles in the design process and knowledge of working with various measurement devices used in determining quality assurance of prototypes and finished goods. While in the program, the learner will be able to seek out entry-level and internship opportunities in engineering departments, plant maintenance, production departments and technical sales and support.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES:

At the successful completion of the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Engineering Technology/Mechatronics program, the graduate will be able to:

  • identify electronic and mechanical parts of an automated system;
  • use electrical wiring diagrams and symbols in making a mechatronics product;
  • install, program, and troubleshoot Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs);
  • implement safety regulations required for operation of the system;
  • resolve equipment problems;
  • differentiate between thermal, mechanical, fluid and electrical power systems in a variety of settings;
  • measure in inches and metric system; and
  • present as part of a design team, the ethics that should be practiced in designing a product.
