Mechatronics

Published or Revised July 13, 2017

Today’s manufacturing industry relies increasingly on electrical control systems, automation and robotics. Programmable logic controls are the heart of automation, displaying the entire manufacturing process on a screen. In modern processes, an electronic brain tells a solenoid to pump hydraulics to increase pressure to move a mechanical arm. Modern manufacturing jobs increasingly need the specialized training provided by this program.

Today’s systems give an alert when something goes wrong, and PJC’s program teaches system level analysis through a hybrid method. Students study theory online and have open lab for hands-on experiments at flexible times under instructor supervision.

This method of training better accommodates adult schedules, and paces for better content understanding. It allows students to continue working, and business owners have more options for workforce training.

PJC offers the following mechatronics program options:
