Robotics Technician Certificate Program
The Robotics (RT) Technician program provides an introduction to industrial robotics and explains how they are used in plants or manufacturing systems. The primary focus of the program is on automated manufacturing processes, the role of robots within those processes and all related support equipment.
The program is divided into 14 modules, each consisting of about ten sections, or major topics. It also includes dozens of robotics lab projects that range in complexity from basic robot functionality to advanced programming techniques.
- Introduction to Robotics
- Robot Classifications
- Manipulators and End Effectors
- Robot Drive Systems
- Servo Systems
- Payload, Repeatability & Accuracy
- Object Detection
- Vision, Touch & Sound
- Robot Programming
- Robot Safety
- Artificial Intelligence
- Autonomous Robotics
One of the main learning features of the Robotics technical program is the complete integration of laboratory experiments and projects within the presentation of the Robotics theory. The simulation software, RoboLogix, converts your computer into a simulated industrial robot, complete with four 3D learning environments which emulate Pick and Place, Arc Welding, Spot Welding and Spray Painting applications. You can run the simulator to test and visually examine the execution of robot programs and control algorithms, while plotting instantaneous joint accelerations, velocities and positions.
RoboLogix introduces the concepts of multi-axes robots and demonstrates how they can be used in a plant or manufacturing system in various 3D simulation environments. Users gain practical, “hands on” programming of an industrial robot through a combination of teach-pendant programming and 3D simulation environments.
The RoboLogix programming environment provides a very realistic simulation of control systems using robotic equipment. The ability to preview the behavior of a robotic system in a “virtual” world allows for a variety of mechanisms, devices, configurations and controllers to be tried and tested by students before being exposed to “real world” systems. RoboLogix receives control signals, determines if contact or collision between objects in the system has occurred, and returns simulated sensor information as feedback. This system has the capacity of real-time simulation of the motion of an industrial robot through 3D animation. The principles of 3D motion simulation and both geometry modeling and kinematics modeling are presented in the RoboLogix virtual environment.
Our pay-as-you-learn option allows you to enroll in the program for $490, which pays for the Interactive Learning Package including lab simulation software and the program material. Also included in this fee are the tuition, final exam, and ancillary fees for Module 1 as well as the technical and tutorial support for the module material. After you complete the first module, you simply pay for additional modules as you work through them. The remaining 13 modules can be purchased individually at $90 per module or in groups. You can take up to 2 years to complete the program.
Register into a complete program and you will have full access to all modules and learning resources in the program. Full registration includes all tuition fees and learning material fees for the program and represents the entire program cost. It also includes the laboratory simulation software program and access to all of the learning resources for the 14 modules as well web-based supplemental resources, free tutorial and technical support and online testing.
