About this Program

Students will be introduced to both electrical and mechanical systems, and learn how they work together. Students will focus on building a foundation of knowledge in AC and DC Electricity, Fluid Power Systems, Mechanical Systems, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Motor Controls, and Robotics.

Students will be able to develop both the hard skills that are associated with the subjects above and soft skills by working on projects by themselves and within groups. They will learn the importance of teamwork, and how individual responsibilities correlate to the overall success of a project. The students will become familiar with project scopes, timelines, system designs, project documentation, individual and group responsibilities, system testing, troubleshooting, machine startups and training.
