The Advanced Mechatronics Engineering Technology program prepares students for employment as a technician in a variety of fields. Students will be exposed to skill-sets relating to electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, robotics, wireless communication, renewable energy, instrumentation, and industry computerized control systems. This broad-based skill set positions graduates to apply for tech jobs in manufacturing, food processing, bio-medical, energy production, wireless communication, avionics, and more!
This unique program also accepts State of Idaho Badges, allowing up to 15 credits of mechatronics-related skills, such as welding, machine tool, HVAC, and/or food processing, to be used toward the total credits required for this degree. Those skills could have been acquired through prior-learning, credit classes, or non-credit training. This flexibility allows students to customize their skills, and/or allows industry to customize the training for students they are hiring or have going through our program.
The demand for skilled workers in this discipline is high, as automation and high-tech equipment is becoming more and more embedded in our society. Our graduates, with a broad-array of highly technical job-ready skills, are very marketable in the workplace.
Note: Registrations for Advanced Mechatronics Engineering Technology courses are restricted to students within the major.
