Do you like working with your hands, especially taking things apart to see how they work and then putting them back together again? That’s what we do in this department, including engineering, electrical engineering and the growing field of mechatronics, which combines the other two fields with computer software. We can help you prepare for a job, advance your current career or transfer to a four-year degree program.

The Mechatronics program faculty and staff are extremely grateful for the Wunderlich's support! This scholarship will change the life of a student every year!
Join us in the afternoon of the second Friday of each month during the fall and spring semesters for a special engineering event featuring guest speakers from local industry or universities, field trips to industry and area university engineering programs.
Consider expanding your learning beyond the classroom by becoming an intern. Whether you are looking to apply learning to a career or transfer to a four-year program, internships provide valuable experience and industry contacts. For more information about Engineering internships, contact Tricia Acton, Internship and Job Developer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We actively network with businesses to serve both the needs of our students and local industry. Our business contacts help guide our curriculum through informal conversations and formal Advisory Board meetings, so that we remain relevant to the changing needs of local and regional industry.
Here is a brief list of the type of skills that we teach our students:
The Mechatronics program faculty and staff firmly believe that the success of our program is based on the success of our students. We seek out employment opportunities for our current students and graduates on a daily basis. We are dedicated to enhancing the student experience in our program by integrating industry-relevant tours, guest speakers and internship opportunities whenever possible.
