This is the second course in the coherent sequence for Automation and Robotics. Students in this course will learn how automation reduces the need for human labor. Students will understand the math, science and technology of robots, their design, and application in industrial automation for manufacturing. Students will learn control systems, robotics and computer applications and how they are used to control machinery in industry. Students will gain a working knowledge of electronics, programming, mechanics, pneumatics and applicable software through technical skills in support of technicians and other personnel engaged with robotics. Students will have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized certifications such as Certified Education Robot Training (CERT) and Robotics Education Competition (REC). The Automation and Robotics and Robotics Education Competition (REC). The Automation and Robotics program uses a delivery system made up of four integral parts: formal/technical instruction, experiential learning, supervised occupational experience, and the Career and Technical Student Organization Skills USA. The Automation and Robotics program prepares students for a career as an automation technician.
