Program Fact Sheet/Courses (pdf file) | e-mail program
The Automated Systems & Robotics (ASRO) program provides students with the entry-level skills and theoretical knowledge to maintain the latest in automated manufacturing, packaging and industrial robotic systems. Graduates from this program are prepared to enter the industry as machine designers, machine assemblers, electro-mechanical technicians, maintenance mechanics and field service technicians. The course of study includes: basic electricity and electronics; mechanical systems; electronic sensors; programmable logic controllers (PLCs); industrial robotics; motion-control systems; and advanced packaging and manufacturing systems.
The ASRO curriculum is aligned with standards set forth by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP), the Robotics Industry Association (RIA), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the Instrumentation Society of America (ISA). Arts & Sciences curriculum supports the technical coursework by enhancing the students' communication, mathematics and critical thinking skills.
Graduates earn an A.A.S. degree and the program takes two years (four semesters) to complete.
