This program is an interdisciplinary area of engineering that combines mechanical and electrical engineering and computer science. This course provides a depth and breadth of the basic skills required in today’s automated manufacturing environment. Students will explore careers, build circuits, and use principles of physics to analyze basic electronic and robotic components. To be eligible for the second-year course, a student must earn a final grade of C+ or better in the first-year course and have no more than 4 CCTC absences. In year two, students construct AC and analog circuits while exploring digital logic systems. This course leads to industry certification options to further validate their mastery of related skills.
