Robotics Technology (325)
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Robotics Technology is a cross-disciplinary program that prepares the student for employment in all sectors of industry in which robotic devices and systems are utilized. All aspects of robotic systems are presented with emphasis on digital and microprocessor electronics, sensor operation and interfacing, high and low-level programming, mechanical design/solid modeling, and autonomous robotic operation. The program is designed to prepare graduates for immediate employment as an electronic engineering technician or manufacturing technician in robotics and robotics-related industries such as manufacturing, aerospace, and defense. In addition, the program provides graduates with the opportunity to transfer to a four-year baccalaureate degree institution. This is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) program.

Program Competencies 

The student/graduate will be able to:

  • Analyze Direct Current (DC) and Alternating Current (AC) circuits using various circuit simplification and analysis techniques.
  • Apply theoretical principles to physically design electric circuits to solve technical problems.
  • Identify common electronic components, devices, and symbols.
  • Write a program to use a microcontroller to control the speed of a DC motor.
  • Design and program an autonomous robotic vehicle.

Minimum - 67 credits

Fourth Semester (15)


1 Calculus I and II (MATH 221, 222) may be substituted for College Algebra (MATH 101) and Trigonometry and Functions (MATH 102).

Students intending to transfer should also take Research Writing (ENGL 102).
