Program Description

The Program – Robotics and Automation Engineering Technology – ATS

Robotics and Automation graduates will combine knowledge of mechanical engineering technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuits to design, develop, test, and manufacture electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems. Their work often overlaps that of both electrical and electronics engineering technicians and mechanical engineering technicians.

Your Degree

Two-year full-time degree schedule; mixture of core technical courses along with basic mathematics, science, and communications classes; program can be completed on a part-time basis.

What you’ll learn

  • Read, interpret and modify engineering drawings, diagrams, and schematics used in manufacturing and production environments
  • Design, interpret, analyze and troubleshoot analog circuits for both DC and AC applications
  • Interpret and analyze and troubleshoot digital electronics
  • Demonstrate the ability to effectively use appropriate tools and instruments to analyze and troubleshoot electrical and mechanical systems and equipment
  • Integrate, program, operate and troubleshoot industrial robots used in manufacturing and production environments
  • Interface, program, maintain and troubleshoot automation systems based on programmable logic controllers
  • Design, analyze and troubleshoot mechanical and electrical diagrams for the installation and repair of control systems including valves, motors, and sensors
  • Demonstrate adherence to safety when working with energized or physical hazards in manufacturing and production environments
  • Internship

An internship is a learning experience that integrates academic skills with workplace experience.  Students in Engineering Technologies can earn college credit, make valuable professional contacts, and link their classroom studies to real-world workplace challenges.  See the department dean or academic advisor for details.
