The Industrial Systems Technology - Mechatronics Technician curriculum is designed to prepare or upgrade individuals to safely service, maintain, repair, or install equipment. Instruction includes theory and skill training needed for inspecting, testing, troubleshooting, and diagnosing industrial systems.
Students will learn multi-craft technical skills in print reading, mechanical systems maintenance, electricity, hydraulics/pneumatics, welding, machining or fabrication, and includes various diagnostic and repair procedures. Practical application in these industrial systems - mechatronics technology will be emphasized and additional advanced course work may be offered.
Upon completion of this curriculum, graduates should be able to individually, or with a team, safely install, inspect, diagnose, repair, and maintain industrial process and support equipment. Students will also be encouraged to develop their skills as life-long learners.
Upon successful completion of the Industrial Systems Technology - Mechatronics Technician program, the student should be able to:
- Plan and construct Commercial and Industrial wiring circuits.
- Identify, explain and troubleshoot hydraulic/pneumatic circuits.
- Create various simple PLC programs using the appropriate instruction set and apply appropriate troubleshooting methods to PLCs.
- Understand the basic concepts and demonstrate knowledge of automation, robotic and data communication systems.
- Demonstrate proper use of general mechanical maintenance knowledge.
