Mechatronics Technology Micro Electromechanical Systems MEMS Major

Mechatronics Technology: Micro-Electromechanical Systems

Associate of Applied Science - Curriculum Code 6520

The Micro-Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) Major is structured to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work as an entry-level technician. Training is provided in the fundmanetal concepts of micro-electromechnical systems and how these devices are designed and fabricated. The student will learn and apply principles in actual cleanroom activities. The program will utilize state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing and designing electronic and MEMS systems. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College's University Partnership.
