Mechatronics interweaves electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering technology with applications in automated industrial processes and robotics. Mechatronics professionals are the technicians and engineers who design and maintain automated equipment. Technicians and engineers conduct their work in laboratories, offices or on-site at manufacturing plants. These professionals work toward the same goal of producing safe and efficient automated equipment. While technicians primarily maintain machinery, engineers are more concerned with the design and development of components and products. A mechatronics technology graduate will design, adapt, and troubleshoot electro-mechanical systems that are controlled by programmable digital devices.
A laptop computer is required for students entering the mechatronics technology program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops. Some courses may require specialized tools and/or electronic components.
Alfred State mechatronics technology AAS graduates may enter directly into the construction supervision BTech, the interdisciplinary studies BTech, or technology management BBA degree program.
None - Inaugural year
Applicants for the mechatronics technology program must possess a recognized high school diploma or its equivalent. A standardized test (SAT or ACT) is not required but recommended. Specific high school course requirements and recommendations are:
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2
