Mechatronics is CCAC’s signature automation systems program where students learn the integrated skills of supply chain, process technology, robotics/ artificial intelligence and electrical systems. In this program, students acquire skills and knowledge in five major areas: computer programming, electrical systems, mechanical systems, robotics and additive manufacturing (3D printing). Training is relevant to several industries, including Marcellus Shale natural gas, energy and manufacturing as well as supply chain and logistics. Students benefit from a technical core set of courses that combine industry-recognized certification and a quality college education. Students in the degree program may specialize in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, Process Technology, Industrial Electronics or Supply Chain Technology.
Graduates of the certificate program may find employment as production workers, inspectors, testers, samplers and weighers, electro-mechanical technicians or maintenance technicians. Degreed graduates may find employment as instrumentation, robotics, electro-mechanical, process, industrial maintenance, field automation, supply chain or automation engineer technicians and also have opportunities to pursue supervisory positions.
CCAC provides an introductory coursework for potential students to earn an industry certification. CCAC also partners with entities and companies for apprenticeships. Go to the links below to find out more about these programs.
