Mechatronics, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing

  • Student in MEAM Program operating machinery in class  

    MEAM is a 4 year Program that began in 2016 in partnership with Raritan Valley Community College. Students learn fundamental manufacturing and machining skills along with high tech manufacturing and design using robotics, 3D printing, and CNC machines.

    The Mechatronics, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Program prepares students for 21st century careers as well as giving them the opportunity to earn as many as 13 college credits in a variety of subjects. Students will attend classes at both the Somerset County Vocational and Technical High School and the campus of Raritan Valley Community College.

    MEAM industry partners collaborate to create industry-relevant learning experiences as well as to provide students with real world projects. This assures that MEAM students graduate with the skills necessary to enter the workforce directly or to continue their education. Students who complete the 4 year MEAM program will also earn college credits from Raritan Valley Community College. Those who go on to earn their Associates Degree at Raritan Valley Community College can then fully transfer their credits to the New Jersey Institute of Technology to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering or Engineering Technology.
