Industries that rely on mechatronics need engineers with a diverse skill set to service these vital systems. In our program, you will gain a solid foundation in the electrical and mechanical engineering technology of mechatronics, plus the skills to apply your knowledge in real world situations.
You'll be prepared to work in mechatronics at any level of the manufacturing process, from design and testing up to manufacture.
Our mechatronics systems coursework covers areas such as:
- automatic control systems
- industrial computer control systems (PLC)
- power and communications systems
- microcontrollers / microprocessors
- testing and troubleshooting
- system design and development
When you graduate, you'll be eligible to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in Virginia and many other states. This exam is the first step to licensure as a professional engineer.
ODU's electrical engineering technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
