Telefunken -- Contracts for Mechatronics Training

Sierra College partnered with Telefunken Semiconductors International LLC to enhance the skills of employees who produce integrated circuits for the automotive industry at the plant in Roseville, CA. The company contracted for 22 employees to receive Mechatronics (www.realskillsrealjobs.com) training.

According to director of manufacturing, Matthew Nadeau, the Mechatronics program -- a study of mechanics, electronics, pneumatics and hydraulics under computer control -- offers a pathway to advancement. “A certificate or AA/AS degree in Mechatronics or Electronics provides our production technicians with knowledge and skills that are needed in order to be considered for promotion,” said Nadeau.

The popularity of the Mechatronics program led Telefunken to contract for the training. “More production technicians were able to enroll in a dedicated course,” said Nadeau. “The instructor recommended that we offer Mechatronics 4 to start out. This is a hands-on class and that enabled our employees to adjust back to the classroom environment more easily.”

Employee feedback has been very positive. “The employees who have taken this class have shown an increased level of interest in their daily tasks,” said Nadeau. “They now have a better understanding of ‘what's behind’ the systems and components. We are very pleased with the results.”
