Mechatronics, Certificate

In our three semester, 36-credit Mechatronics certificate program, students will combine mechanical, electrical, computer, and software skills to prepare for positions operating and maintaining the electro-mechanical, computer-controlled systems commonly found in automated manufacturing environments.  The Mechatronics Program is based on elements of the German dual system of vocational training, where participants rotate between practice (workplace) and theory (classroom) throughout the program.  We have partnered with the German American Chamber of Commerce to create this affordable full-time program that will add value to the company and help them strengthen their workforce by developing and retaining the best talent. Upon completion, participants will earn IHK (Industrie und Handelskammer) certification by the German American Chamber of Commerce, indicating that their knowledge and skills are aligned with German quality standards.
