Engineering Technology Program Requirements

Robotics & Automation Technology

The emphasis in robotics and automation will prepare the student for careers in the fast-paced world of manufacturing, automation and control systems. These control systems are present in everything from high-tech manufacturing and robotic processes to amusement park rides. This industry is experiencing unprecedented growth both locally and internationally.

The courses in this grouping focus on industrial control systems, robotics, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Students completing this concentrations will have experience in the installation, repair, and troubleshooting of automated electromechanical control systems. Typical applications involve the wiring of PLCs, sensors and motors, ladder logic and HMI programming / editing, and system integration. As these systems become “smarter”, the role of a skilled technician increases. Come join this exciting field!
