Robotics & Electronics Technology ATA
Advanced Materials Manufacturing
The Robotics and Electronics Associate of Technical Arts (ATA) degree program trains students to enter the job market as Electronics Technicians, Electromechanical Technicians, Field Service Technicians, and Manufacturing Technicians. The training is generic and is applicable to many fields such as Aerospace, Electronics Manufacturing, Medical Equipment, and Telecommunications.
This program trains students in electronic circuit analysis, functional testing and troubleshooting of complex linear, digital, and microprocessor/microcontroller based systems. This training makes extensive use of practical, hands on learning. Whenever possible, we model real-world applications so our graduates are prepared for the work they will find.
Upon completion of the Program Requirements for this degree, students will be able to:
1. Use independent research to learn about new technology and equipment.
2. Analyze, test and troubleshoot complex electronic circuits using industry standard test equipment.
3. Use simulation software to model circuits and predict circuit operation.
4. Write, run and debug diagnostic test programs for service and repair.
5. Communicate technical information effectively in writing.
6. Apply industry standard methods to the replacement of parts on a circuit board.
Students will demonstrate General Education/Related Instruction
Learning Outcomes in each of the following areas:
1. Communication Skills: Write in clear, effective ways, adapted to audience, context, and purpose.
2. Quantitative Skills: Apply mathematical, quantitative or symbolic models to solve problems, draw inferences, or support conclusions appropriate to an individual discipline.
3. Human Relations/Group Interaction: Identify and explain how to apply the skills needed to maintain effective working relationships in multicultural settings.
4. Cultural Diversity: Apply multiple perspectives when examining cultural differences and interacting in multicultural settings.
