STEM Introduction to Mechatronics
Mechatronics is a field that combines several types of engineering—electrical, computer, and mechanical to solve problems in fields such as agriculture, health care and manufacturing. In this course students will use a mix of hands-on activities and self-paced e-learning to gain skills with mechanics, electronics, and computing while learning how these constantly changing technologies will be applied to many exciting and in demand future careers. This introductory course is part of the Wisconsin DPI’s Advanced Manufacturing career pathway and is a pre-requisite to other courses in that pathway.
