Mechatronics Technician Program


Areas of Study - Degrees & Certificates  >  Energy, Manufacturing & Construction  >  Energy and Manufacturing Technology Programs  > Mechatronics Technician Program

Men and women working as Field Service, Petroleum Field Service and Mechatronics Technicians complete highly technical tasks that require advanced training and knowledge. Due to the advancements in electro-mechanical systems, interdisciplinary fields are rapidly developing to address the design, operation and maintenance of products and systems that require a working knowledge of both mechanical and electronic components.

A field service technician installs and maintains industrial service equipment, instrumentation controls, and electro-mechanical systems. After completing the Field Service technician certificate, students can pursue an additional certificate and/or degree.

  • The Petroleum Field Service Technician certificate and degree prepares a student for entry into the Oil and Gas industry with the hands on knowledge of the supporting systems for the drilling, completion and operation of Oil and Gas wells.
  • The Mechatronics Technician Certificate and degree prepares a student to enter the industrial automation industry with an emphasis in robotics, programmable logic controls and automatic electro-mechanical systems.
