Automation and Robotics Technology

Robotics and automation is a growing career field full of choices.

The skills are in demand everywhere in America’s manufacturing, and expanding into nontraditional markets, like hospitals and health care. Other opportunities include building, farming, food processing, homeland security and the military. And then there’s the future, with new jobs that don’t even exist today, but requiring advanced skill sets.

Stark State’s automation and robotics associate degree associate program will give you the high-value skills for career success through hands-on training. You’ll train on Allen/Bradley family PLCs and Fanuc robots learning

  • AutoCad
  • visual basic programming
  • PC repair and maintenance
  • common industrial controls
  • industrial sensor and instrumentation.
  • programming and troubleshooting PLCs
  • setup and programming industrial robotics

The SSC automation and robotics program also offers stackable, one-year certificates that can stand alone or be part of the path to your degree.

And on the other side, you’ll find job opportunities in mining, steel mills, processing plants, oil refineries, power plants, manufacturing, semiconductors, electronics and chemical industries. Your duties could include construction, fabrication, maintenance, troubleshooting, repair, calibration, testing and design. You could work with automatic control systems, AC and DC control components, motors, programmable control, microprocessors, computers and robots.

Businesses today are looking for new tools that give them an edge, and robotics and automation are the way to do it. That means this career field – with jobs that don’t move overseas – could be the way to your career success.
