Electro-Mechanical Technology


Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid

Electro-Mechanical Technology (or mechatronics) is one of the most in-demand and highly sought-after careers in the manufacturing industry. The combination of electrical and mechanical skills based in computer-aided drafting, and machine technology create a unique blend of knowledge desirable to industry. These technicians are trained in a variety of skill areas, allowing companies to utilize their knowledge for a vast array of technical and mechanical issues. When everyday issues arise that could cost a company revenue when they occur, having a multi-skilled technician on staff that can address issues immediately allows companies to continue production at a minimal loss. Electro-mechanical technicians have become essential positions in the manufacturing industry.
