Robotics/Automated Systems Technology

If you want a career in a fast-growing, high-demand field, this program will prepare you for career opportunities in robotics and automation. Robotics students will be introduced to troubleshoot automated manufacturing equipment like PLCs, robotics, pneumatics, hydraulics, and motors and controls using Factory Automation Numerical Control (FANUC) robots.

Did you know? Robotics technicians work in many different locations. Some are employed by factories and automation facilities. Industrial robots in these places usually have a specific job, such as welding or painting. Any time that a robot breaks or malfunctions, a robotics expert is responsible for diagnosing and repairing the problem. Robot techs must be able to work under pressure in order to minimize factory downtime and fix problems quickly.
