Sierra College Mechatronics Seeks Industry Input

This event has been postponed.

Advisory Committee Meeting: Tuesday, March 10, 2020 from 6:30 — 8 PM in the V-127 (V building of Sierra College Rocklin Campus)

The primary reason for having this advisory meeting is to ensure that the content of Mechatronics courses is as real-world as possible, explained Tony Osladil, Department Chair, Mechatronics, Sierra College.

“The goal of our Mechatronics program is to provide our local employers with technicians who are work-ready upon their graduation,” said Osladil. “To do that, the content of our classes is dictated by what skills our local employers tell us they want in their technicians.”

“We need industry input, especially on which technologies and skills are coming on strong and should therefore be added or enhanced in our program,” said Osladil. “We also want to know which skills are becoming less critical and should be pared back.”

In addition to the Advisory meeting on March 10, employers may be interested in the Mechatronics Career Fair on Friday, April 17.
