The Robotics and Automation Engineering Technology (RAET) program is designed to prepare engineering technologists for employment in the field of advanced manufacturing.
Students master engineering fundamentals by taking courses in engineering design, manufacturing processes, computer programming, circuit theory, and digital electronics. Emphasis is also placed on the study of mathematics and physical science while English and social science courses broaden and improve the student’s communication skills.
A series of more advanced/specialized courses focus on the application and integration of new and existing technologies to both product design and product manufacture. Topics include robotics, machine vision, process automations, programmable logic controllers, motion control, and the use of computers for design and manufacture.
The degree of Associate in Science in Robotics and Automation Engineering Technology is awarded upon successful completion of the program. Graduates will have the foundation necessary to pursue a bachelor’s degree and to take advantage of opportunities for life-long learning and professional development.
Specific Admission Requirements
- At least three years of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry) with minimum grades of “C”;
- It is strongly recommended that all engineering technology applicants have satisfactorily completed high school level courses in chemistry and physics.
