Division of Science and Mathematics

The Mechatronics Engineering Technology Certificate program provides the student with a route to obtain both a college credential and a national certification (Advanced Manufacturing Integrated Systems Technology, AMIST-1). This provides the student with a strong foundation for potential employment as an entry-level industrial maintenance technician or to continue towards completion of the RACC Mechatronics Engineering Technology AAS program of study. The program integrates basic industrial mechanical and electrical systems with digital controls to match the needs of modern manufacturing.

Students are granted credit by articulation for the required Mechatronics Engineering Technology (MET) courses after completion of the course competencies through courses offered by RACC’s Workforce and Economic Development/ Community Education Division. Students should contact that division to obtain information on course offerings and costs.

Program Competencies

Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Demonstrate effective technical writing skills.
  • Use basic hand and power tools proficiently for equipment maintenance.
  • Demonstrate mechanical, electrical, and digital controller skills appropriate for equipment maintenance.
  • Apply mathematical methods to solve problems in applied physics.

Proficiency Certificates are certificates which are designed to prepare students for specific occupations and allow the student to enter the world of work with a targeted set of skills valuable in the designated occupational area.

Required Program of Study


Students are required to take a RACC placement test for COM 121  and MAT 160 , have appropriate SAT scores for placement, or transfer an approved equivalent course from another college. Students placing below the knowledge level of these courses will be required to pass one or more pre-requisite courses before registering for these courses. Other courses may require additional pre-requisite courses depending on math, reading, and writing placement as detailed on the course description pages.

Completion of MET 120 , MET 130  and MET 140  is required for AMIST-1 certification.
