Careers

The skills learned in the Mechatronics program are applicable to many trades and also to several branches of professional engineering, such as mechanical and electrical. Anywhere automated controls are used, you will find applications for Mechatronics skills.

Many current workers take several classes or one of our shorter certificates to upgrade specific skills for their job.

Below are the federal government classifications for Mechatronics related jobs, according to the Occupational Information Network (ONET). The ONET service offers lots of detail about the training needed, and skills and knowledge required for each occupation. It is a good tool for educational and career planning. A link to ONET is available below.
