  • ENGT 115 C Electric Motors and Controls
  • ENGT 120 C Mechanical Systems
  • ENGT 125 C Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems
  • ENGT 150 C Digital Fundamentals and PLC Programming
  • ENGT 160 C Industrial Data Network and HMI
  • ENGT 210 C Principles of Robotics Systems
  • ENGT 225 C Robot and Automation Programming
  • ENGT 240 C Advanced Robotics
  • ENGT 250 C Industrial Maintenance and Safety
  • ENGT 255 C Integrated Automation Systems
  • ENGT 265 C Manufacturing Operation Management
  • ENGT 290 C Industry 4.0, IIoT, Digitization

Upon successful completion of these courses, the students can earn:

  • Certificate in Mechatronics and Industrial Automation.
