Robotics

Electronic skillset for an electronic age

Students in the Robotics program will learn about robotics. Let us introduce you to robotic and manufacturing simulation and manipulation. Learn how to operate tools like lathes, mills, routers and grinders through Computer Numeric Control (CNC). Let us introduce you to computer-aided design (CAD), which replaces manual drafting with automated drafting, and watch your 3D models or 2D drawings come to life. In this program you will also use digital electronics and electronic bread boards so you can see how the circuits on your robot function.

You will learn how to do this on:
• Industrial robots and robot simulators                                        **Some courses**
• Arduino and Raspberry Pie micro controllers                                also qualify as
• C++ and LabVIEW programming language                                     college credit!
