Automation & Engineering Technology
1 & 2

Automation and advanced manufacturing techniques are decreasing manufacturing time to allow the engineers to unleash their imaginations with new designs. A new generation of engineers is needed use advanced systems such as 3D printing, robotics, and CNC manufacturing to their full potential. Students will employ these systems on various projects for hands-on engineering design experience.

COURSE OVERVIEW: 1ST YEAR
(DOE COURSE: INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION & ROBOTICS I-5610)
  • Opportunity to design and construct large scale projects that incorporate computer control, sensors, electrical circuits, and actuators used in industry (remotely operated hovercraft, automated drawbridge, robotic vehicles, etc.)
  • Hands on engineering experience with industry training equipment used in advanced manufacturing. Training then applied to design projects
  • Troubleshoot automated systems, diagnose problems, and design solutions using the engineering process
  • College course work covers schematics, mechatronic systems, quality control, and electrical theory
  • Potential to utilize classroom experience to intern with area businesses and participate in industry sponsored design projects
COURSE OVERVIEW: 2ND YEAR
(DOE COURSE: INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION & ROBOTICS II-5612)
  • Design Projects that integrate computers and mechanical systems to automate tasks
  • Industrial PLC and arduino programming projects
  • Program industrial robot to complete material handling tasks and perform quality checks
  • Use Lean Manufacturing principles in design to improve product quality
  • Potential to utilize classroom experience to intern with area businesses and participate in industry sponsored design projects
  • Prerequisite: Automation & Robotics I
    (DOE COURSE: INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION & ROBOTICS I-5610)
CAREER FOCUS
  • Students will be prepared to continue their education at a 2 or 4 year postsecondary institution in an engineering or engineering technology field, or move into a career/education track position in the advanced manufacturing field

Earn up to 42 college credits
Manufacturing Skills Standards certification available
1st year costs = $30
2nd year costs = $30
