More information can be found at the Advanced Manufacturing Electronics website.

Students will learn about the equipment and components of instrumentation and control systems found in the process and energy supply industries, as well as basic operation and applications of microprocessors. Students will also learn how to program a robot in a higher-level language to perform various tasks.

This Advanced Manufacturing Machining certificate provides students with entry level machining and technology skills. Students learn to use AutoCAD, and are introduced to advanced applications of 3D parametric software, with the ability to blend the virtual and real design worlds together through the use of 3D CAD Modeling, and 3D Printing. Students also learn how to use common measuring instruments relating to state-of-the-art manufacturing environments. This certificate is one of four certificates that build on each other across three semesters.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the Advanced Manufacturing Electronics certificate program, students should be able to:

  • Follow safety policies and/or procedures according to industry standards
  • Interpret and draw wire diagrams, schematics, and ladder logic diagrams to implement automation systems
  • Apply the principles of basic electronic theory including operations and applications of basic DC/AC circuits
  • Use the SolidWorks software package to create advanced models, parts, assemblies, and related documents (e.g., bill of materials, parts lists)
  • Diagnose, troubleshoot, and repair electronic system problems, while completing the appropriate documentation
  • Build, troubleshoot, and repair fiber optic and Local Area Networks (LANs)
  • Operate, program, maintain, troubleshoot Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs
  • Program, maintain, and troubleshoot robotic automated systems
