In late 2018, mechatronics Sierra College Professor Tony Osladil was chosen by the National Association of Community College Entrepreneurship to represent the United States at the International Conference on Science of Intelligence and Learning Revolution held in Hangzhou, China, according to a release.

The conference was hosted by Zhejiang University with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Entrepreneurship Education Network National Chapter in China and the internet company Netease. Osladil’s travel and participation were fully underwritten by sponsors so that he could present innovative education models from the United States at this multi-national conference.

“Our program offers a project-based, systems-oriented education to produce world-class automation technicians and engineers,” said Osladil. “Embedded in the program are opportunities to apply entrepreneurial skills as they innovate, troubleshoot and seek ways to solve problems for consumers and businesses.”

The United States and the rest of the world face a severe shortage of skilled automation and robotics technicians, Osladil said.

“The demand for skilled Mechatronics technicians continues to grow as more automation is integrated into our infrastructure and business processes every year,” said Osladil.

The spring semester begins on Jan. 28 and students can register now at and sign up for Mechatronics classes being offered at the Rocklin, Nevada Country and Tahoe-Truckee campuses this semester.
