Associate of Applied Science
Industrial Technology - Mechatronics
Mechatronics is the combination of mechanical maintenance and 21st century technology. Companies in every industry are looking for technicians to keep their assembly line, testing and maintenance equipment performing effectively. Jobs are available in every industry, from renewable energy to telecom, agriculture and biotech fields.
MACC's Mechatronics program will give you hands-on experience to design, install, repair and maintain electrical systems, hydraulics, pneumatics, and more. Our instructors will teach you how to work safely, efficiently and solve problems quickly, both on your own and as part of a team. Let MACC give you the skills to compete in this exciting new field.
MACC's Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Technology-Mechatronics prepares students to be electrical and mechanical technicians who can troubleshoot, maintain, and repair mechanical equipment for today's highly integrated and automated manufacturing facilities. Courses include intensive hands-on lab components and are designed to create a cross-trained technician with skills in electrical systems, motor control, hydraulics and pneumatics, programmable logic controllers, safety, and quality control.

This academic map is a semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AAS degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. Additionally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information. Finally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years.
