Mechatronics (A.A.S.)

Study mechatronics at JCC

Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary field that combines elements of engineering, machining, information technology, robotics, and electronics. It synergizes these diverse fields to keep production lines, manufacturing floors, and industry processes working smoothly.

Graduates of this program will be prepared to operate and maintain electro-mechanical systems found in automated or robotically controlled environments.

Program components include comprehensive analysis, assembly, and troubleshooting techniques, which are reinforced through laboratory experiences.
