In the STEM Automation and Robotics course, students discover how the four disciplines connect as they design a complete robotics system. Once they are familiar with automation and robotics, they’ll have the opportunity to design innovative solutions to real-world problems, challenges, and needs.
- Applied fields
- Conveyors and feeders
- Computer science
- Control systems
- Binary logic
STEM AUTOMATION AND ROBOTICS
The purpose of the STEM Automation and Robotics course is to provide students the opportunity to explore the design of robotics systems in a simulated manufacturing environment.
Students will be challenged to come up with system solutions by taking on the role of a robotics system engineer. Students must adhere to the specifications and constraints given and explore and practice the skills of robotics programming and system design to develop solutions in real-world contexts.
Upon completion of the STEM Automation and Robotics course, students will be able to:
- Design a complete robotics system, with a focus on the important roles robotics systems play in the manufacturing industry
- Program a robot arm and peripheral tools, including a gravity feeder and rotary carousel
- Use RoboCIM software programming and lead-through programming with a teach pendant to program the components and design the system
- Simulate manufacturing processes through robotics system design to represent the production of products
- Take on the role of robotics system engineers to optimize the robotics system design
