AET/M Robotics & Control Systems Technology

Bachelor of Science (AETM): Robotics & Control Systems Technology

Bachelor of Science, Applied Engineering & Technology Management: Robotics & Control Systems Technology

Students in the Robotics and Control Systems (RCSY) option are introduced to the fundamentals of current power and electronic systems used in industry. Laboratory courses may require students to design, program, develop and construct projects independently as well as in small groups. Seniors are encouraged to participate in a cooperative education or internship experience to further their knowledge and technical/managerial skills in an industrial environment.

The study of robotics and control systems involves the optimization and automation of processes. Graduates of this option would be prepared to work with multiple types of technological systems in order to design, implement, prove or justify a newly automated process. The graduate may also optimize processes to increase a company’s financial competitiveness. Typical entry-level professions include: Process Engineers, Application Engineers, Controls Engineers, Control Technicians, Field Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Robotic Technicians, Project Managers, Technical Managers, Supervisors, and Team Leaders.

Upon the completion of the Robotics & Control Systems Technology option, the student will be able to:

  • Use a variety of electronic test equipment such as analog and digital meters, oscilloscopes, frequency counters, power supplies, logic pulsers and probes in order to verify proper circuit operation, or to troubleshoot and solve electrical and electronic problems.

  • Demonstrate knowledge related to the fundamental study of electronics (component level and systems theory).

  • Design, create and integrate programmed solutions via PLC and PC for problems associated with process control.

  • Utilize electromechanical and programmable systems in order to implement designed solutions associated with process control.

  • Retrieve and assess electronics and control information from journals, periodicals, technical manuals, component substitution manuals, Internet, and other technical sources.

  • Describe the impact of various robotic and control systems on society today.

  • Demonstrate the systematic research and development process in learning and applying current contemporary robotics and control systems technologies.

  • Demonstrate advanced technical knowledge in robotics and control systems through the completion of advanced technical coursework.
