NEW MECHATRONICS (MEMS) PROGRAM BEGINS AT LCCC

A new associate degree that prepares students to work in the emerging micro-electromechanical field begins this fall at Lorain County Community College.

Mechatronics Technology with a major in Micro-Electromechancial Systems (MEMS) will prepare students as entry-level technicians and give them an understanding of how MEMS are designed and fabricated.

“This is an opportunity for students to get in on a field that hasn’t existed before,” said Kelly Zelesnik, LCCC’s dean of Engineering Technologies.  “There have been jobs on the East and West Coast, but with the development of the SMART Center on our campus we may be seeing more jobs in Northeast Ohio.”

The first class in the program – Introduction to Micro-Electromechanical Systems – will be offered in fall, which begins August 26.

The program will utilize state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing and designing electronic and MEMS systems.

It is offered as an associate degree, and for those who may already have a degree but would like to enter this field a one-year technical certificate or short-term technical certificate are also offered. LCCC has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by LCCC’s University Partnership.

For more information representatives from the program will be available to talk with you at 6 p.m., Tuesday, August 20 in the lobby of LCCC’s Desich Business and Innovation Center.   Or call (440) 366-7241 or visit www.lorainccc.edu/mems for additional information.
