Offered on the Blinn College-Brenham Campus and new for fall 2022, the two-year Associate of Applied Science Degree in Mechatronics will offer the most comprehensive mechatronics program in the state, preparing students for academic transfer to a bachelor's degree program or for immediate entry into the workforce, where graduates can earn a median salary of $59,800 and work in a wide array of industries. Students seeking a bachelor's degree can continue their studies through Tarleton State University's Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and Technology at the RELLIS Campus.

Through the program, students earn stackable credentials: a one-semester occupational skills award, a two-semester Level 1 certificate, a three-semester Level 2 certificate, and a four-semester Associate of Applied Science degree. With each award, students gain progressively advanced skills and are prepared for higher-paying career opportunities. 

The program teaches students to install, maintain, diagnose, and repair robotic and automated manufacturing systems. Courses include Electricity Principles, Robotics, Principles of Automatic Control, Basic Fluid Power, Digital Systems, Industrial Automation, Industrial Electronics, Microcomputer Control, Instrumentation and Safety, Industrial Maintenance, Advanced Programmable Logic Controllers, Electromechanical Systems, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, and an industry internship. Students also learn key workplace attributes, including time management, collaboration, operations analysis, and customer service.

While the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Mechatronics is designed for students interested in immediate entry into the engineering technology industry, students enrolled in the program can continue their education by pursuing Tarleton State University’s Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology at the RELLIS Campus.
