Motlow College Dual Enrollment in Mechatronics Offered this Fall to Oakland High School Students

February 6, 2013

Fred Rascoe, director of career readiness at Motlow College, and Ingrid Williams, department secretary, spoke during a recent industrial expo at Oakland High School about the upcoming Mechatronics Dual Enrollment Program Motlow will offer this fall to Oakland students. Dual enrollment courses are those in which students earn both high school and college credit. Roscoe said mechatronics courses are based on the Siemens Mechatronics Systems approach to product manufacturing and are designed to prepare students for careers in today’s high tech manufacturing environments. Representatives of Nissan and Bridgestone, both of which utilize mechatronics, also attended the expo.
