As demand for goods increases, so does the need for quicker, more efficient ways of producing them. Technicians that work in robotics and advanced manufacturing are capable of troubleshooting and controlling complex interrelated mechanical and electronic control systems and equipment.
The Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) in Manufacturing Technologies, with Production Systems, Automation and Robotics, and Advanced Manufacturing emphasis trains technicians to integrate, maintain and operate advanced robotics, computerized inventory and process control, quality assurance and system management in modern manufacturing facilities.
What Will I Study?
Regardless of emphasis, you will start off learning basic industry safety standards, as well as electrical theory. Most of your time will be spent in-person with hands-on training with state-of-the-art equipment, learning to integrate, diagnose, and troubleshoot problems within advanced production systems.
TMCC also offers The Cyber-Physical Manufacturing Bachelors (BAS) program, which offers training to meet the changing manufacturing environment associated with the 4th Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0). Here, you will utilize state-of-the-art equipment and advanced robotic programming simulation software (RoboDK) to analyze and apply advanced technical skills in the operation, design and maintenance of product identification systems, programming of cell robots, networks and cybersecurity systems, production planning and control using a manufacturing execution system (MES); programming for Industry 4.0; human-machine interfaces (HMIs); and smart maintenance.
