Robotics and automation have become vital to the success of global business. Technicians install, troubleshoot, maintain and repair automated equipment controlled by electronic and computer systems used in a variety of applications. High School students will build four and six wheel ground drones as well as quadcopter aerial drones. Adult students will install, calibrate and troubleshoot process control loops, motor controls, PLC’s, hydraulics and pneumatic systems. High demand areas include petroleum, manufacturing, medical equipment, renewable energy, food processing, aerospace, defense and telecommunications. This is an excellent foundation for students working toward a degree in engineering.
