Mechatronics: Power Transmission

Career Pathways Certificate

About the Program

Power Transmission is an engineering method that matches the power machine and the working part of the machine in terms of energy configuration, movement speed and motion form. Of the four major types of transmissions (mechanical drives, hydraulic, pneumatic and motor controls) that are currently in use, none of the power transmissions are perfect.

Electric motor control teaches electric relay control of AC electric motors found in industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Learners gain understanding of the operation, installation, design, and troubleshooting of AC electric motor control circuits for many common applications.

Develops skills in interpreting schematics, system design, motor start / stop circuits, motor sequence control, reversing motor control, and motor jogging. Safety is emphasized throughout, highlighting motor safety, lockout/tag out and safety interlocks.

Mechanical drives introduces mechanical systems and develops fundamental knowledge of mechanical systems and practices. Covers basic safety, installation, key fasteners, power transmission systems, v-belt drives, chain drives, spur gear drives, and multiple shaft drives. Topics covered include learning how to select, install, adjust, troubleshoot, and repair a range of mechanical systems which are commonly found in both automated and manual machines used in every industry around the world.

Basic hydraulics introduces hydraulic Safety, power use and application, allowing learners to develop skills and knowledge needed to apply hydraulics in modern industry. It takes learners through key topics and skills in hydraulic power & safety, hydraulic circuits, hydraulic schematics, the principles of hydraulic pressure and flow, and hydraulic speed control circuits. It covers pumps, fluid friction, how to connect hydraulic circuits, hydraulic cylinders and valves (including needle valves), and a wide array of hydraulic applications.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for mechatronics programs are:

Install, troubleshoot, maintain and repair power transmission systems using industry-standard tools, practices and procedures.

Demonstrate skills and ability to troubleshoot and repair power transmission systems.

Organize, interpret, and use technical information and documentation.

Practice energy efficiency and industrial sustainability.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college registration policies and with the Manufacturing/Engineering Technology Department chair’s recommendation. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements. Students must complete coursework in their major at a “C” or better level before proceeding to advanced coursework. Each College Now credit student must meet with the department chair to determine placement.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their degrees. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
