Creating the Future...Challenging the Impossible
Mechatronics is a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, information technology and intelligent systems utilized in the design of products and computer integrated automation systems. Students who complete the four-credit secondary sequence will have post high school options of going directly into work, or entering a two-year associate or four-year degree path in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, information technology, electronics, computer integrated manufacturing, or robotics. The job outlook is excellent and salaries range from $30,000-$80,000 with the median salary range of around $50,000.
