College Catalog Fall 2016 - Spring 2017

Mechatronics Technology - BT

Minimum Requirements to be Considered for Admission

  • GPA: 2.3 or higher
  • Successful completion of trigonometry (minimum mathematics level)
  • Successful completion of general physics with lab
  • Successful completion of an approved AAS degree in an applied technology.

This will be determined by mechatronics faculty if an articulation agreement has not been formalized for transfer students from other higher education institutions* and for internal students transferring from other degrees.

In instances when transfer students are seeking to enter the Mechatronics Technology Degree from non-articulated pathways, student portfolios will be reviewed in determination of which core competencies have been met at the associate's level.
