The robotics and automation engineering technology bachelor’s degree provides students the technical knowledge and analytical skills needed to design, build, and control the movements and actions of robots and automation systems. This program provides experiential learning in the fundamental areas of machine design and analysis and digital and analog circuits, along with specialized training in robotics and automation topics such as automated control systems, manufacturing, robotic programming algorithms, and various sensor systems including machine vision.
The robotics and automation engineering technology degree option responds to the increasing need for professionals in the growing fields of robotics and automation. The curriculum provides students with a solid background in the three cornerstone disciplines of the field: mechanical engineering technology, electronic and computer engineering technology and computer systems technology. Students are challenged to apply course principles in hands-on, industry-relevant projects throughout the program.
The robotics and automation industry requires technical engineering knowledge, but also the ability to communicate and apply knowledge in hands-on laboratory and factory settings. The hands-on, experiential teaching model at K-State Polytechnic ensures graduates are prepared to be leaders in their field upon graduation.
