Programs Is mechatronics worth it?

I have an interest in robotics and I recently done some research and found that only a hand full of colleges offer bachelors in robotics and the rest are masters degrees. I’ve been looking into getting an associate degree in mechatronics, but noticed that most mechatronics programs aren’t abet accredited. I was wondering since there aren’t a lot of colleges that offer bachelors degrees in robotics is getting a two year degree in mechatronics worth it or is it a waste of time?
Basically, robotics is the hard topic, which pay off only if you have some non-career interest in it. For just the education/employment planning, it is not that attractive, therefore some dis-balance in associated courses.
