Mechatronics is a word coined in Japan during the 1970s in conjunction with the growing synergy of mechanical systems and electronics. The development of robots and automated systems that followed is behind every industry.
From biomedical to manufacturing to logistics to producing the food we eat daily, mechatronics lies at the heart. So why study mechatronics? Today’s modern industries rely on skilled technicians trained to cross complex technological lines to maintain equipment and troubleshoot automated systems. HACC students heading down this road learn multiple disciplines involving electronics and mechanics to become equipped as maintenance technicians and problem-solvers that will keep industry alive and moving.
