Manufacturing Technology (Mechatronics) is the combination of many disciplines.
Computer Programming, Electronics, Programmable Logic Controllers, and
Robotics are key fields, with specific skills including: panel wiring,
machine set-up/trouble shooting, and quality control.
Manufacturing Technology (Mechatronics) is the first program in the state
to address the demand for specialized technicians. Cowley College continues
to address current and future demands, by continually building relationships
with industry leaders. Manufacturing Technology (Mechatronics) teaches
the design, building, and maintaining of equipment that combines electronics,
mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, and computer control systems.
Technicians are well paid to set up and maintain robotic equipment, automated
manufacturing equipment, treatment plant equipment, programmable logic
controllers, and any hybrid production or test equipment. These specialized
technicians will meet a current and future need for local, area-wide,
and global manufacture needs.
In addition to technical classes, one related course (Technical Mathematics)
is also required for all students as well as 18 specified general education

The Manufacturing Technology (Mechatronics) program will support the
mission of Cowley College and the Career and Technical Education Department.
Employers and students will be served by providing relevant skills and
theoretical knowledge of manufacturing systems and processes. The Manufacturing
Technology (Mechatronics) program offers customized classes as well as
a certificate program and an Associate of Applied Science in Manufacturing
To become a premier provider of manufacturing
technology education in the region and prepare students for successful
careers in manufacturing related occupations.
