The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Industrial Robotics and Automation Technology prepares students to work with a variety of automated electro-mechanical, product assembly, process control, and product distribution systems that use programmable controls and other methodologies to accomplish system management. These systems utilize, but are not limited to, robotic, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electronic, optical, and thermal devices. The Automation Technician will gain the skills through this program to define, integrate, install, program, and maintain complex control systems.
