The Automation Mechatronics Program is a collaboration between Chattanooga State's Engineering Technology Division and the Volkswagen Group of America Chattanooga Operations. Read more about Volkswagen Academy
Mechatronics integrates the fields of mechanical, electrical, control, and computer engineering. This concentration was created because knowledge across these disciplines is essential to improve and/or optimize the functionality of modern engineering systems.
Students receive both classroom instruction and hands-on training in electronics, robotics, automation, programmable logic controllers, manufacturing processes, fluid power, and welding.
The Automation Mechatronics track requires a separate application, and students are chosen from a pool of applicants through a competitive selection process based on testing and interviews. Students are challenged throughout the program and must be at college level in all subjects. Students must follow Volkswagen's policies and meet attendance expectations to remain in the program.
