Manufacturing Technology (Mechatronics)

Program Overview

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.
