Industrial Robotics & Automation

Mechatronics PictureDescription: A 2-year program that will train you to become an Industrial Maintenance Technician. In this program, you will gain a hands-on working knowledge of electronics, pneumatics, robots, and motors as well as how to use computers to control these things in a manufacturing setting. Because of a lack of Industrial Maintenance Technicians, it is very likely that a graduate of this program would be able to go straight to work out of high school into a high-paying job. Job opportunities in the area include places such as O.G.&E., Johnson Controls, & OU Physical Plant.
