Jobs are waiting today in the futuristic field of mechatronics. Learn more about the mechatronics in sensors and micro-electronics technology program at Lorain County Community College at an upcoming information session.
6-7 p.m., Tuesday, November 10 in the Richard Desich Smart Center, room SM 306
Students have the option of pursuing an associate degree, one-year technical certificate, or short-term technical certificate. Also available to students is the opportunity to be involved with LCCC’s work-based learning program, where the student is hired as a paid intern with a company involved with mechatronic products.
Mechatronics consists of a multidisciplinary field of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, controls, material science, and micro electrical mechanical systems (MEMS). The Mechatronics program offers a variety of challenges to students interested in pursuing careers in any of the above fields whether that means earning a bachelor’s degree in engineering or science, or starting a new career working as an operator within these fields.
“There are jobs waiting in these industries for people with this MEMS training,” Vanderford said. “The MEMS program prepares to students to enter the workforce and employers are eager to hire.”
Students enrolled in mechatronics courses at LCCC get hands-on experience in the first class working at the operator level in a cleanroom on college grounds with materials, equipment, and processes related to mechatronics while also learning problem solving skills related to MEMS theory of design, sensor operation, material and size constraints, circuit design, manufacturing, and project management.
