Grades 11- 12 (both semesters required)
Weighted Dual Credit - Ivy Tech
Prerequisites: (ACT R18/W17/M18, PSAT R46/W46, SAT R460/W460, ACCUP R76/W80/)
Do you like to know how things work? Have you ever wondered how they are made? Then enter the world of robotics and automation as you learn through hands on and real world activities about the world of CIM. This class provides you with the opportunity to work with cutting edge software and equipment just like the ones used in manufacturing today. You will be amazed as you watch the machinery you designed and programmed come to life as it goes to work performing whatever tasks and functions you told it to do.
This course focuses on Robotics, Control Systems, Computer Aided Design (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Numerical Control (CNC), and Automation. This path builds on and applies a wide variety of skills learned in your previous pre-engineering courses. Students who take this course will have the opportunity to earn dual college credits from various post-secondary schools.
