Trade programs can equip you with the tools you need to go after a job that lets you use your hands to make a noticeable impact in the world. In fact, the skilled trades represent some of the smartest and most fulfilling job choices available today, and offer stable, well-paying careers.
MECHATRONICS & ROBOTICS
Students will learn Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulic and Pneumatic systems along with Tools, Meters and Test Equipment. Mechatronics combines mechanical, electronic and computer technologies to create automated, ‘intelligent’ machinery and robotics that improve the efficiency, safety and productivity of manufacturing (and other) processes. Successful students will have the opportunity to earn up to 4 PMMI Certifications (Fluid Power 1, Industrial Electricity 1, Mechanical Components 1, and Programmable Logic Controllers – PLCs 1).
SOLDERING & CABLING
Students will learn hands-on the electronic assembly processes involved in soldering and cabling. Students will learn various requirements of recognized industry standards by the Association Connecting Electronics Industries. Successful students will have the opportunity to earn up to 3 certifications (IPC 610, IPC 620, and J Standard).
WELDING & FABRICATION
Students will learn the fundamentals of welding, Thermal Cutting, Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW).
