Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Steve Szymanski

Greetings! My name is Steve Szymanski, (the "Z" is silent). I received my BSME from NJIT, my ME from USC and my Doctorate from Harrington University. Prior to teaching I spent my career as an engineer in manufacturing for many years before moving to project and consulting engineering. I then taught Mechatronics at The Midlands Technical College on the Beltline campus, prior to joining "The Center", where I taught PLTW courses and now Mechatronics.

I enjoy Mechatronics. The total course prepares you for a high tech career in advanced manufacturing and engineering automation. Mechatronics is the integration of mechanical engineering, computer engineering, electronics  and information sciences. These careers are high wage, and challenging with a national need for automation engineers and technicians.
