|Mechatronics Fundamentals Certificate
||Engineering and Applied Technology
Total Units: 12
The Mechatronics Fundamentals skills certificate prepares students for entry-level positions that involve the operation and maintenance of electro-mechanical computer-controlled systems commonly found in automated manufacturing environments. Systems-level analysis, assembly and troubleshooting techniques are stressed in the hands-on laboratory activities. Course topics include microcontroller, industrial robotics and control of D/C motors using sensors and actuators
Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- Use a microcontroller to detect inputs from sensors.
- Control LEDs, servo motors, speakers, and other devices in response to inputs and programming.
- Demonstrate safety procedures when handling the robot.
- Program a set of movements on the teach pendant.
The requirements for the Mechatronics Fundamentals Certificate program are:
