The Advanced Automation and Robotics (AART) program at Ivy Tech offers hands-on learning with modern equipment in classes taught by faculty who have spent their careers working in manufacturing. Students will be able to troubleshoot automated manufacturing equipment like PLCs, robotics, pneumatics, hydraulics, and motors and controls.
For even more real-world experience, this degree offers the opportunity for a paid internship at local companies where students will work two days per week and attend class three days per week. A few of the companies we partner with include Eli Lilly, Ingersoll Rand, Oerlicon, Alcoa, Amatrol, Dupont and Allison Transmission.
Graduates of the AART program will be able to work as an automated equipment technician in almost any industry. Students will earn several certifications that will make them even more valuable to employers including the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) credential, the OSHA Certification and the Siemens Level 1 certification.
