Technical Diploma

The Automation Mechatronics Program is a step beyond a traditional industrial maintenance program in that multiple disciplines are combined into a systems approach to troubleshooting and resolving problems in an automated manufacturing plant. The program provides students with knowledge and hands-on training in mechanics, electronics, computers, robotics, automation systems and four semesters of paid, on-the-job-training at the Volkswagen Assembly plant. Mechatronics technicians are highly-skilled and valued employees in all industrial settings.

Career Opportunities

Graduates will be qualified to work in any manufacturing production facility (automotive and non-automotive), heavy and light industrial maintenance activities and full and semi-automated environments.
