Chattanooga, TN 37403
Dr. Nesli Alp, Associate Dean and Chattanooga Manufacturer’s Association (CMA) Professor in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at UTC, and Mr. Tim McGhee, Dean of Engineering & Information Technologies Division at Chattanooga State Community College, will speak about their partnership to develop the first Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Mechatronics Engineering Technology.
This degree is designed to prepare individuals to work in a variety of applied technological career paths in business or industry, who typically possess a two-year technical degree, and are interested in advancing their professional career. This new “2+2” degree will permit students to apply their 2-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees toward the BAS degree at UTC, by providing maximum flexibility for graduates to pursue diverse employment opportunities. Completion of the degree will also be available through a web-based online delivery format.
Adapting to the growing need for trained engineering technologists within the automotive and manufacturing industry is the emphasis of the BAS degree in Mechatronics Engineering Technology. The program combines mechanical design, manufacturing, and electrical control areas. Students in this program will also benefit from internships offered by local industries. The program will produce graduates that are prepared for successful careers in the area associated with the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and oversight of advanced mechatronics systems.
UTC will provide a tour in the College of Engineering and Computer Science after the lunch program.
