Curriculum Code 1521
60 credit hours

This program prepares students for a career in the production automation, robotics, and industrial networking. This program provides in-depth knowledge and practical experience in production automation, robotics, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Students will be working with state-of-the-art equipment including industrial robotics systems and automation controllers.

Students focus their studies in five high-demand tracks: CAD Automation, Electrical Automation, IT Automation, Mechanical Automation, and Mechatronics.

Depending on which track students choose will determine the more specialized courses in their third and fourth semesters.
