Automation & Engineering Technology
1 & 2

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
