Mechatronics Design

Mechatronics Design (AAS, AOS)

Mechatronics designers turn the ideas of inventors and engineers into technical plans for production. Graduates of this program are prepared to step directly into high-paying jobs working on robotic systems and intelligent equipment in manufacturing, food processing, pharmaceutical production, power generation and distribution, mining and other applications.

SUNY Delhi's Mechatronics Design program was the first of its kind in New York State, and Delhi is the only college to have three curricula nationally certified through the American Design Drafting Association. You can earn an AOS (Associate in Occupational Studies) degree and go directly to work, or earn an AAS (Associate in Applied Science) and pursue our Bachelor of Technology degree in Mechatronics Technology.
