Advanced manufacturing technology is used in automated fabrication machinery (robotics) that require skilled technicians to design, program, service and repair. Associate degrees focus on either design or electronics, with several complementary certificates, to develop marketable technician skills for the dynamic world of high-tech manufacturing. Mechatronics refers to the combination of mechanics and electronics.
