Mechatronics Education Center
MECHATRONICS: The integration of mechanical, electrical and software systems to control diverse processes.

In plain English, Mechatronics is how high-tech manufacturing gets done today. And it’s one of the fastest growing career areas in the world.

From medicine to food processing, from auto assembly to computer chips—Mechatronics is at the very heart of quality control, reliability, consistency and profitability. It’s a field that is changing at a dramatic rate—driven by new technology, innovation and global demand.

The Mechatronics Education Center (MEC), led by Central Community College, is your gateway to putting this powerful concept to work for you. Whether you’re an employer, an educator, a student, or looking to improve your current skills, the Mechatronics Education Center is the resource that can help you improve your bottom line—however you define it.
