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 computer science, electronics, and mechanics and requires you to perform work on a microscopic level. 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, job-focused program that will give you an understanding of how MEMS are designed and fabricated and prepare you to work as an entry-level technician. We’ve partnered with six different Northeastern Ohio microelectronics companies who are looking for trained workers to ensure that our classes teach you exactly what they want you to know on the job. The program utilizes state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing and designing electronic and MEMS systems.
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.
