Mechatronics Technology - Micro-Electromechanical Systems, Short-Term Technical Certificate

Curriculum Code #6500

Effective May 2017

Division of Engineering, Business and Information Technologies

The micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) short-term technical certificate is structured to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work as an entry-level technician. Training is provided in the fundamental concepts of micro-electromechanical systems and how these devices are designed and fabricated. The student will learn and apply principles in actual clean room activities. The program will utilize state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing and designing electronic and MEMS systems. Every course in the short-term technical certificate can be applied to the two-year associate of applied science degree in the MEMS major of the mechatronics program. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College’s University Partnership.
