Your Future in Mechatronics 


Mechatronics is the merging of multiple engineering disciplines into a broader field. Students are taught the integration of electronics, mechanics, pneumatics and programming to create economical, energy efficient and reliable automated systems that can be used in industrial, medical, and residential settings and in efficient transportation systems.


Students who are interested in careers in industrial settings will learn the basic concepts necessary to design, build, maintain and control robots and other automated systems. Those who focus on renewable energy and energy efficiency will learn mechatronics through hands on applications involving wind turbines, solar panels, solar thermal systems, and geothermal integration.

Advanced training

and education

Although students may obtain on-the-job training through entry-level employment, it is recommended that students seek formal advanced education through apprenticeships, certificate programs, and two- and four-year colleges such as Ferris State University, Kettering University (Flint,MI),  Lawrence Technological University, Macomb County Community College, Michigan Institute of Aviation and Technology (Canton, MI) or St. Clair County Community College.



Currently TEC's Mechatronics program articulates college credit through Ferris State University, SC4 and Macomb.
