Oversee the design and implementation of precision machinery with a degree in Automation Engineering Technology.
Modern manufacturing requires machines capable of producing increasingly complex components and assemblies with speed and precision at a low cost. Automation engineers combine traditional engineering design methods with expertise in industrial robotics, programmable automation controllers, and data visualization and analysis to design, implement, and maintain automated manufacturing equipment that can meet the growing demands of Industry 4.0.
- Students will be exposed to traditional engineering design methods, industrial robotics, and process control techniques to create automated manufacturing solutions.
- The program fosters the development of problem-solving skills through real-world, hands-on problem-solving that involves troubleshooting and maintenance exercises.
- The development of soft skills is reinforced through presentations and reports focusing on solution design, quality control reporting, and maintenance planning.
Why Study Automation Engineering Technology?
The manufacture and assembly of precision components and products depend on mechanical systems controlled by electronic equipment. These systems are designed, constructed, built, programmed, tested, and installed by engineers who are cross-trained in multiple disciplines, and they apply their broad-based knowledge and technical skills to ensure that equipment and systems function smoothly and efficiently.
This program will be available beginning with the Fall 2024 semester. Full curriculum information will be forthcoming.
