Advanced Automation and Robotics Technology

ADVANCED AUTOMATION AND ROBOTICS

The Advanced Automation and Robotics Technology program is designed to prepare students for the modern manufacturing environment. This program will prepare you for employment with companies that have implemented team oriented design, production, quality, and maintenance systems within the manufacturing environment.  American manufacturers are becoming increasingly dependent upon the use of high-tech equipment that involves multiple, integrated systems.  It is critical that these companies be able to recruit and employ individuals who know how to operate, troubleshoot and maintain this high-tech equipment.

Certificates:

Mechatronics Level I (21 credit hours = 2 semesters)

Short-term certificates are sequences of technical and professional courses that are industry focused and designed for workforce preparation. They provide access to targeted, short-term training in a discipline, and completers may sit for specific certification exams. Courses in certificate programs also apply toward technical certificates and associate degree programs in the subject area.

Degrees:

Associate of Applied Science (75 credit hours = 6 semesters)

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Advanced Automation and Robotics will give you the knowledge and skills for career entry or advancement in a current job. Associate of Applied Science degree programs are two-year programs that prepare students for careers, career changes and career advancement. Students who need to take longer to complete the degree because of job or family obligations can take the program over a longer period of time. AAS programs may also prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions. These programs offer education in recognized technical areas and specialties with emphasis on analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The program content, which is approximately 30% general education and 70% professional/technical, provides depth and breadth in conceptual and professional/technical skills. The general education courses equip students with the problem solving, communications, scientific and mathematical skills to compete successfully in the job market. Professional/technical courses equip students with the skills to obtain employment and to advance in the workforce.
