Students will build on their knowledge of mechatronic systems in this advanced course. Mechatronic systems are comprised of mechanical, electrical, and software systems, and form the foundation of robotics, automation, and advanced manufacturing (such as three dimensional [3D] printing). Students will apply principles related to pneumatic, electro-pneumatic, and hydraulic control circuits as well as basic digital logic and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in a complex mechatronic system. Students will troubleshoot and resolve malfunctioning pneumatic and hydraulic components and circuits. Upon successful completion, students may qualify for industry certification. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
