Modern manufacturing is based on a combination of advanced technologies that use complex machining, automation, and robotics equipment to efficiently produce a vast array of products. Our innovative and industry-driven mechatronics degree program prepares you to work in a wide variety of settings by developing your knowledge and skills across a range of aspects of manufacturing, such as welding, machining, programmable logic control, robotics and more.
The manufacture and assembly of precision components and products depend on mechanical systems controlled by electronic equipment. These systems are calibrated, operated, maintained and tested by electromechanical technicians who are cross-trained in multiple disciplines and apply their broad-based knowledge and technical skills to ensure that equipment and systems function smoothly.
The Baker College Associate of Applied Science in Mechatronics degree program is a 3-year program consisting of 63 credit hours (48 hours of major courses and 15 hours of general education requirements). Our curriculum includes circuits, machining, industrial controls and instrumentation, PLC programming, robotics and a capstone project
We brought Mike in as an intern from ADI, and during his internship, he really impressed us. If we compare him to the other people we’ve seen come out of trade schools, he’s up in the top end of the class.
Upon completing the program, you qualify for a Department of Labor apprenticeship certification, allowing you to begin exploring your chosen field more quickly.
