Micro-Electrical Mechanical Systems – or MEMS – is an emerging technology that uses micro and sub-micro scale electronic components to create mechanical devices and components such as sensors, valves, gears and mechanical actuators. These components are often embedded in printed circuit boards and semiconductor chips. The field requires knowledge in electronics, computer-aided drafting, soldering and requires you to perform hands-on work on a microscopic level in a microelectronic manufacturing, design or development environment. As a new technology, there is unlimited growth potential and the opportunity to work on groundbreaking devices.



More about Mechatronics


LCCC’s mechatronics program is an exciting hands-on and career-focused program that will give you an understanding of how printed circuit boards with MEMS sensors are designed, developed, manufactured, and reworked. The industry-tailored content in the MEMS degree prepares you to work as an entry-level technician. We’ve partnered with over 70 different Northeastern Ohio microelectronics companies who are looking for trained workers to ensure that our classes train and educate you to get hired to work in the electronics manufacturing, microelectronic development, or PCB repair industry. The program utilizes state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for soldering, reworking, electronic testing, troubleshooting, prototyping, and designing electronic and microelectronic circuit boards.

The program offers a short-term certificate that can be earned in one semester, a one-year certificate, an associate degree and Ohio’s first bachelor’s degree in MEMS. 


Information Sessions

Learn about electronic hardware manufacturing with live demonstrations of electronic assembly while answering questions related to degree content as well as career placement. The info session is designed to be interactive between the presenter and the audience.

The intended audience is for those who may be interested in signing up with MEMS or want to know more about what the program’s career placement opportunities and education content. This is an educational opportunity to see live demonstrations, listen to and interact with the coordinator during these demonstrations, and get questions answered about the degree and training offered in the core courses.
