Industrial Electrical Technology (IET), Electromechanical (IETELMT), Mechatronics (IETMECH)

Industrial Electrical, Electromechanical and Mechatronics programs are designed to provide students with the skills needed to master current technology and gain employment in industry. Programs are divided into levels or "building blocks", allowing each student to meet his/her specific career goals. A certificate is awarded at each level. Associate of Science
degrees are awarded for each program.

Modern industry rely on highly complex production systems to produce high quality, economical products for an ever-demanding world. These programs train students to effectively troubleshoot, maintain, program, and repair mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, digital PLC's, robotics, and motion control systems. 

There are a wide range of companies that need these technical skills. Industries such as Logistics or e-commerce, including shipping, warehousing, and fulfillment centers. Food & Beverage such as bottling, canning and processing. Pharmaceutical & Utility companies, heavy industry such as steel, paper/cardboard, rubber, oil & gas. Companies that produce construction materials, mining, as well as transportation, such as railroads or traffic signals, industries also include theme parks, and of course manufacturing.

Industrial Electrical Technology, is the study of electrical motors, variable speed drives and controls, including computer controls such as Programmable Logic Controllers known as (PLCs), and robotics. Industrial Electrical Technology also covers The National Electric Code NEC, OSHA, electrical schematics, blueprints, AC/DC drives, process control, electrical troubleshooting as well as solar and electrical theory.

Electromechanical Technology is the study of how industry uses air and fluid power, along with electrical controls. This program combines industrial electricity control concepts with hydraulics and pneumatics to prepare the student to work in the areas which use fluid power, to move and operate automatic machinery.

The Mechatronics Program at Chaffey College also known as "Industrial Automation" is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as electromechanical technicians in modern industry. This program trains students to effectively troubleshoot, maintain, program, and repair mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, digital controls including PLC's, robotics, and motion control systems.
