Engineering and Robotics

Your future in Engineering and Robotics*

Engineering and Robotics is the merging of multiple engineering disciplines into a broader field. Students are taught the integration of electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, and programming to create economical, efficient and reliable automated systems that are used in industrial, medical, residential and commercial settings as well as in efficient transportation systems.

Students will learn the basic concepts necessary to design, build, maintain and control robots and other automated systems. They will complete FANUC America’s “Certified Education Robot Training” (CERT) and may earn a Level I and Level II industry certification.

Advanced training and education
Although students may obtain on-the-job training through entry-level employment, it is recommended that students seek formal advanced education through apprenticeships, certificate programs, and two- and four-year colleges such as Ferris State University, Kettering University (Flint,MI), Lawrence Technological University, Macomb County Community College, Michigan Institute of Aviation and Technology (Canton, MI) or St. Clair County Community College.

Currently, TEC's Engineering & Robotics program articulates college credit through Ferris State University, SC4, and Macomb.
