Program Overview

The Robotics program provides the knowledge and skills to equip students for careers in industrial maintenance, manufacturing, electronics, precision machining, and robotics. These courses include significant technical depth and engineering concepts and terminology. Robotics provides a safe and appropriate setting for student exploration and achievement. Students gain knowledge and skills through an active, structured, and stimulating environment coordinated with simulated workplace learning experiences. The learning environment utilizes a variety of physical space to stimulate development of effective cognitive and psychomotor skills. Students experience a wide range of hands-on activities based on authentic representations of expectations found in the workplace. Theory and concepts are taught in proportion to the need for strong application opportunities with emphasis on timely learning experiences that facilitate the transition to skills attainment. Safety, proper tool use, and adherence to procedures are integral components for all student learning experiences. Are you interested in working in the Robotics and Manufacturing industry?
