The automation industry is a branch of the electronics field and is one of the fastest growing areas of our national and international high-technology economy. It combines the fields of electronics, electrical, and mechanics and includes the interaction and control of motors, computers, pneumatics, hydraulics and other processes used in manufacturing. The technology is applied to a wide variety of systems such as communications and process controls.
The Automation Engineering program prepares students to work as automation and robotics engineering technologists. You’ll learn to work with robots, computer numerical control (CNC) equipment, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). You’ll also gain fundamental knowledge in the principles of mechanical engineering technology, electrical and electronic circuits, quality control, and research and development techniques.
The program offers a short-term certificate that can be earned in one semester as well as Associate Degrees. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.
