Mechatronics combines several disciplines, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Robotics. The combination of these engineering disciplines create design, development and control of very complex systems used in a range of industries including manufacturing, medicine, and all service industries.
The vast array of mechatronics systems include: aircraft construction and design, design and production, medical and surgical devices, robotics, toys and numerous other industries. This program prepares students who like to work with their hands as well as with their minds. Mechatronics is a field that changes daily with the rapid improvements in technology and computer systems. Systems are networked to meet the demands of automated industrial processes and students are trained to meet these necessary entry-level skills as well as entry into a postsecondary school.
Potential future employers in the Upstate of SC include Michelin, Bosch Rexroth, GE, BMW, Bausch + Lomb and others. There is a high demand for employees in this field.
