A Dual Emphasis for Your Success

The Mechatronics Engineering Technology program gives graduates a broad foundation in mechanical and electrical engineering principles. Because employers value employees who understand both aspects of engineering, our graduates are very desirable job candidates.

We have also designed this degree as a 2+2 program. If you decide to further your education after graduating from Gaston with your associate degree, your courses and credits will transfer directly to a four-year school. Many students earn their bachelor’s degree in either electrical or mechanical engineering, but their degree from Gaston gives them a solid understanding of both sides and helps them see which area they prefer to specialize in when they transfer.

Whether you are just beginning a career in this industry or have years of experience and are looking for a new position or skill set, the Mechatronics Engineering Technology program will teach you skills you can apply in many different jobs. Faculty have close relationships with students so we can get to know your individual goals and help you get exactly the experience and training you need to succeed. 

Our class formats are also flexible to accommodate your busy schedule and other commitments in life. We offer day and night classes at Gaston College. Some of the courses in this program are also offered online. Others are hybrid courses that incorporate online work and a weekly on-campus class.
