Robotics Technology is a cross-disciplinary program that prepares the student for employment in all sectors of industry in which robotic devices and systems are utilized. All aspects of robotic systems are presented with emphasis on digital and microprocessor electronics, sensor operation and interfacing, high and low-level programming, mechanical design/solid modeling, and autonomous robotic operation. The program is designed to prepare graduates for immediate employment as electronic engineering technicians or manufacturing technicians in robotics and robotics-related industries such as manufacturing, aerospace, and defense.

Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:

  • Analyze Direct Current (DC) and Alternating Current (AC) circuits using various circuit simplification and analysis techniques.
  • Apply theoretical principles to physically design electric circuits to solve technical problems.
  • Identify common electronic components, devices, and symbols.
  • Write a program to use a microcontroller to control the speed of a DC motor.
  • Create an autonomous robotic vehicle.
