About the Robotic Systems Engineering AAS

Your Robotic Systems Engineering AAS prepares you to maintain and repair industrial manufacturing automated and robotic machinery. You’ll explore the operation of industrial automation systems and use industry-standard software tools to diagnose, repair, and apply preventative maintenance fundamentals to keep these machines in operation. You’ll also develop new skills through hands-on projects in electronics, robotics, hydraulics, pneumatics and programmable logic controllers.

Your degree concentration coursework covers the applications of robotics, cyber–physical system modeling, motion/path design, robotic sensors, event programming, remote sensing and more.

Semesters to complete assumes students are taking a full-time credit load of 12 credits per semester (the minimum required for federal financial aid).

Proportion of students completing in normal time is the percentage of completers who earned the credential within the specified time of their first enrollment at the College.

Students attending part-time or changing their program of study are two common reasons why they may not complete in "normal" time.

Tuition and fees are set by the Board of Trustees. Prices for books and supplies are subject to change.
