Study mechatronics at JCC
The Mechatronics degree at Jamestown Community College prepares you to enter the workforce after graduation and work in careers where you operate and maintain electro-mechanical systems found in automated or robotically controlled environments.
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.
While at JCC, you’ll learn about comprehensive analysis, assembly, and troubleshooting techniques, which are reinforced through labs.
2022 median pay for electro-mechanical and mechatronics technologists and technicians: $60,570/year according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
