What You Can Learn
The Mechatronics Technician program includes some of the following courses:
- Industrial Electricity I
- The Industrial Electricity course covers basic safety practices for voltages up to 600 volts as well as knowledge of voltage, current, and power in AC and DC circuits, circuit analysis of series and parallel loads, and a basic understanding of resistors, capacitors, and inductors. The course applies these fundamentals to simple applications, light commercial, and simple industrial use.
- Mechanical Components I
- The Mechanical Components course covers in-depth topics including methods of identifying belt size and type, selecting sheaves, bushings, and a V-belt for given applications, installing and aligning a timing belt drive system, specification: of high torque drive belts and sprockets , and maintenance steps for synchronous belt drives.
- The Fluid Power course covers the principles of functionality for fluid power dynamics, including hydraulics and pneumatic components, and the theory of operations.
Programmable Logic Controllers
- The Programmable Logic Controllers course is an introduction to basic PLC Programming. The curriculum covers topics including: PLC orientation, operations, programming numbering systems, PLC memory organization, PLC programming software, and PLC program analysis. languages. In addition, PLC motor control, discrete input and output interfacing, PLC timer, and counter instructions are reviewed.
