Mechatronics

Mechatronics I (8554)
Suggested Grade Levels: 10-11
Credit: 3 Prerequisite: None


Students will learn about mechatronic systems in this introductory course. These systems are comprised of mechanical, electrical, and software systems. Mechatronic systems form the foundation of robotics, automation, and advanced manufacturing (such as 3D printing). The rapidly evolving area of mechatronics offers a variety of career options across many technological fields. Career options may include mechatronics technician/engineer, mechanical technician/engineer, electrical technician/engineer, process control technician/engineer, instrumentation technician/engineer, machine operators, and maintenance technicians.

Mechatronics II (8555)
Suggested Grade Levels: 11-12
Credit: 3 Prerequisite: Mechatronics I


Students will build on their knowledge of mechatronic systems in this second-year course. Mechatronic systems, comprised of mechanical, electrical, and software systems, form the foundation of robotics, automation, and advanced manufacturing (such as 3D printing). Students will explore mechanical, electrical, and pneumatic/hydraulic systems related to mechatronics, as well as relevant computer technologies. Upon successful completion, students may qualify for industry certification.

Mechatronics III (8556)
Suggested Grade Levels 12
Credit: 3 Prerequisite: Mechatronics II

Students will build on their knowledge of mechatronic systems in this advanced course. Mechatronic systems are comprised of mechanical, electrical, and software systems, and form the foundation of robotics, automation, and advanced manufacturing (such as 3D printing). Students will apply principles related to pneumatic, electro pneumatic, and hydraulic control circuits as well as basic digital logic and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in a complex mechatronic system. Students will troubleshoot and resolve malfunctioning pneumatic and hydraulic components and circuits. Upon successful completion, students may qualify for industry certification.
