This certificate introduces the students to the field of robotics and its applications. It consists of three courses in a sequence that are designed to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of sensors, actuators, motors, applications using microcontrollers, and advanced training. This certificate is entirely hands-on and students construct various types of robots.
A grade of "C" or better is required in each course. Completed courses will appear on student's transcripts. However, the Certificate of Specialization will only appear on documents obtained directly through the Department.
Program Learning Outcomes
Implement various sensors, such as motion, light, temperature, proximity, in robotic designs.
Construct a command activated and driven robot.
Operate "pick and place" robots and create a system that is capable of voice command recognition.
