The Mechatronics program offers an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) and a Bachelors of Science (BS). An Associate in Applied Science degree is known as a “job ready” degree. The majority of classes you will take will be major specific classes and you will only have six general education classes to complete. The AAS degree requires a total of 63 credits. This is approximately 18 classes depending on your level of math and English when you begin. This type of degree will give you the experience needed to get a job and start a career. Please visit the course requirements area to see a list of all required classes.
The Bachelors of Science degree has been officially approved! You can now register for classes beginning Fall 2015!
The Mechatronics program works in a cohort system where 30 new students begin every fall semester (August). We recommend registering early to get your spot. Registration for fall semester begins in April. You will need to contact the Mechatronics Academic Advisor to find out which classes to register for. The program takes approximately 2 years to complete or a total of 4 semesters. We only offer Mechatronics classes in the fall (August-December) and spring (January-April) semesters.
To begin the program you must meet the following standards: You must be at a MATH 1050 College Algebra level of math. To know what level of math you are at we will look at either your ACT/SAT scores if you are 23 or younger or we will look at your Accuplacer scores if you are 24 and older. If you have not taken the ACT/SAT or the Accuplacer then please visit the following link for more information.
Students must obtain an overall grade point average of 2.0 (C) or above, with no core course below a C- in order to graduate.
