Mechatronics is a training program and partnership between Mercedes-Benz  U.S. International, Inc. in Vance, Alabama, Shelton State Community College and the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

 The graduation ceremony for the first class from the program was held at the MBUSI Training Center on August 16, 2013. A new Mechatronics session begain in Fall, 2013.
