Robotics/Automated Systems Technology (ROB.AUT.AAS)
Associate in Applied Science
Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology
Auburn Hills Campus
This program is designed to prepare students for career opportunities in the robotics and automation fields and provides a background in many areas of technology:
- Robotic Programming Applications
- Computer Integrated Manufacturing
- Robotic Controllers
- Robotic Mechanical Drives
- Robotic Welding Systems
- Programmable Controllers
- Human Machine Interface
- Industrial Networks
- Vision Systems
Robotics/Automated Systems Technologies prepare students for employment in advance manufacturing and for emerging technologies.
A robotics technologist applies traditional electro-mechanical skills with knowledge of programming, controls, and networking to mechatronics concepts as related to robotic systems. Individuals in the field of robotics apply logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of approaches to problems, or to alternative solutions for innovations in technology leading to development of new applications and markets for robotics.
High school graduates who completed state-approved career and technical education (CTE) programs may be eligible to receive college credit for work completed while in high school. Detailed information can be obtained by contacting an OCC Counseling Office or by visiting www.oaklandcc.edu/articulation.
Two certificates are offered for acquiring useful credentials in robotics, enhancing current skills,
or building toward an associate degree:
- Robotics/Automated Systems certificate
- Programmable Controllers certificate of achievement
