JOIN THE MECHATRONICS PROGRAM TODAY
Mechatronics is a training program and partnership between MBUSI, Shelton State Community College, and the Alabama Industrial Development Training (AIDT).
Mechatronics is the combination of MECHANICS and ELECTRONICS. The increasing complexity of technology has since warranted the inclusion of various additional functions such as Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, and Control Engineering.
The Mechatronics program provides students with the cognitive and hands-on skills necessary to support the building of world class automobiles at Mercedes-Benz U.S. International in Vance, Alabama.
After completing the Mechatronics Training & Curriculum at Shelton State, the top percentage of the graduating class enrolled in the program, will advance to MBUSI and earn a full time position in Production.
Of the students that advance to MBUSI, a top percentage will go into the MB Industrial Mechatronics Maintenance Program at AIDT.
