College Catalog Fall 2016 - Spring 2017

Mechatronics Design - AAS and AOS

The Instructional Program

The Mechatronics Design program offers two associate's degree options: the Associate's in Occupational Studies (AOS) and the Associate's in Applied Science (AAS). The technical content of each is identical, and both are equally effective in securing employment. The AAS option has a few more liberal arts and science courses and is appropriate for students who plan on transferring to a four-year school. The first semester of each option is identical so that students can enter either and then switch, if desired, after the first semester.

High School Articulation

SUNY Delhi has been a statewide leader in developing articulation agreements with high school technology programs and BOCES centers. These agreements are advantageous to students in that they eliminate redundant course work and make the transition to college more efficient since it is possible to earn up to 6 college credits toward a Mechatronics Design associate's degree while still in high school. The credits are granted after a student successfully completes the first semester of a SUNY Delhi Mechatronics Design degree program. Students interested in this program should contact their high school technology department or their BOCES instructor. Contact the mechatronics faculty at SUNY Delhi for articulation competencies, reevaluated based on restructured and expanded program options.

Student Learning Outcomes

A graduate ofthe Mechatronics Design AOS or AAS program should be able to:

  • Delineate various mechanical types of parts by following the industry standard, ASME Y14, as it relates to line quality, lettering, geometric constructions, multiview drawings (orthographic projection), and sectioning.
  • Detail various mechanical types of parts by following the ASME Y14 standard as it relates to dimensioning and tolerancing.
  • Detail various mechanical types of parts by following the ASME Y14 standard as it relates to descriptive geometry, theory of projection, and auxiliary views.
