Robotics Engineering is a new, dynamic field involving mechanical, instrumentation, electronics, robotics, automation, computer components and control systems. Students will experience the demands of highly automated manufacturing processes by networking hardware and software systems together which are commonly found in game machines, hybrid autos, “smart products” and a long list of other equipment and systems that we depend on daily. Students will gain knowledge and skills in blueprint reading, CAD drawing, mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, electronics, motor control, robotics and motion control, process control, instrumentation and computer integrated manufacturing.
