In just two years or less, you can get the technical training and career preparation you need to land a good job in today’s high-tech industrial and manufacturing settings.

“If you like working with your hands and making stuff work, or working with robotics, the Mechatronics program is a good choice," says LBCC Mechatronics graduate Kalvin Guilford. "You’ll learn how to make cool stuff happen. Working on the solar panel project, we had to overcome issues with lubrication and programming. In Mechatronics, we learned a lot of troubleshooting skills which helped us, and our basic programming and logic control class helped us to control the system.”
