What You Can Learn in Mechatronics
Our Mechatronics program field focuses on real-world application of engineering principles. Engineering technologists are usually the link between the engineers and the technicians. They work with engineers from the conception phase of a product to the final production and assist in the design, development, testing, and production of electrical/electronic/mechanical equipment and components.
Your Mechatronics studies will focus on core areas such as:
- Applied Mechanics
- Programmable Controllers
- Hydraulics and Pneumatics
- Testing and measuring instruments.
- Computer Hardware and Software
- Materials Science
- Analog/Digital Electronics and Communications
- Automation and Control Systems
- Computer Programming and Networks
Building upon ECPI's tradition of providing an interactive hands-on education in technology, our objective is for you to:
- Use testing and measuring instruments to acquire data, analyze problems, and design a system or process.
- Identify, analyze and solve technical problems.
- Demonstrate an ability to manage engineering technology projects.
- Analyze and implement systems containing hardware and software components.
