Mechatronics Technician

Skills & Competencies

Mechatronics technicians  have a combined skill set and can handle mechanical and electrical tasks and therefore a highly involved with maintaining automated equipment such as robots and other state-of-the-art machinery. Mechatronics technicians apply their knowledge of engineering to solve technical problems and maintain automated mechanical equipment. This may entail inspecting, troubleshooting and repairing electrical, electronic and mechanical components. Mechatronics Technicians are needed in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, construction, agriculture and aerospace.

Tasks include but are not limited to:

  • Process mechanical parts
  • Assemble sub-assemblies and components into mechatronics system
  • Install electrical sub-assemblies and components
  • Measure and test electrical values
  • Install and test hardware and software components
  • Build and test control systems
  • Program and maintain mechatronics systems
  • Assemble sub-assemblies and components into machines and systems
  • Assemble and dismantle machinery, systems and plants, transport and secure
  • Test and adjust the functioning of mechatronics systems
  • Commission and operate mechatronics systems
  • Hand over plants, instruct users in their operation and provide services

Classroom training will be conducted at CCAC's Mechatronics Lab at their Westhills Center every other Friday (apprentices will be paid during classroom training) to give our apprentices a real college experience. The curriculum includes classes i.a. in basic electrical and their components, motor control, wiring, power distribution, hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics. 

Apprentices that finished the Apprenticeship program can work as: Advanced Manufacturing Technician and Mechatronics Technician
