Introduction to Mechatronics Badge Details


As an Introduction to Mechatronics, this industry recognized certification aims to relay foundational information and develop hands on skills in the areas of Mechanical, Electrical, and Control Technology. Students will develop competencies to operate and maintain pneumatics, electricity, sensors, actuators, and controls. Utilizing real-world automation devices students will also gain additional skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). These skills that are at the core of automation, production, and manufacturing are in high demand. At the conclusion of the course, students will be prepared to enter into high levels of Mechatronics and Industry 4.0 training, as well as filling much needed career positions such as certified production technicians and/or operators.
