DO YOU WANt To BUILD A ROBOT?
Are you ready to find out if Androids dream of electric sheep?
It’s not science fiction anymore—you will learn and develop skills to make your aspirations a reality. This is your opportunity to gain expertise with specializations in automation, robotics, and process control with emphasis on computer-controlled systems for industrial manufacturing, system integration, instrumentation, simulation, and animatronics. As a student in the program, you will develop skills used for careers ranging from manufacturing to theme park industries, military applications to water filtration and purification plants, and much more.
The purpose of the Engineering Technology A.S. program is to prepare you for employment or provide additional training if you were previously or currently employed in the manufacturing, electronics, aerospace, or other related industries. As a graduate, you are prepared to work as controls engineers, systems integrators, robotic technicians, industrial programmers, process control engineers, field service technicians, simulation technicians, industrial sales engineers, and industrial maintenance technicians.
The 18 credit hour technical core has also been aligned with the standards of the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council. MSSC standards define the knowledge, skills, and performance needed for positions in manufacturing. After completing the technical core and General Education requirements, students are eligible to take the exam for MSSC Production Technician Certificate.
The Automation & Advanced Manufacturing track specializes in automation, robotics, and process control with emphasis on computer-controlled systems for industrial manufacturing, system integration, instrumentation, simulation, and animatronics.
