With growing reliance on automated technology in the manufacturing sector, technicians are being challenged to perform higher-level tasks that involve diagnostics, analytics, trouble- shooting and hands-on maintenance and repair. Employers have recognized a need for technicians to be able to acquire more advanced training that will enable them to carry out these activities, as well as prepare technical reports pertaining to the operation and management of an automated manufacturing facility. The MAMT program provides opportunities for students to acquire such expertise and at the same time extends their skill set to include hands-on skills in applied trades in areas such as machining, welding, metal fabrication and electrical.
The program also includes the most current technology in computer numerical control (CNC) programming, renewable energy, and computer controlled autonomous systems; hydraulic, pneumatic, electronic and robotic
Semesters 1 and 2
Semesters 1 and 2 are aligned to the internationally recognized Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification (SMSC) Program and provide certificate graduates with the opportunity to obtain Siemens Mechatronics Certification Levels 1 and 2. Certificate graduates from the MAMT program will be equipped with the knowledge, expertise and skills to operate, maintain, and conduct diagnostics on mechatronic systems at a technician level.
