This program will prepare students for entry- level employment in the automation systems maintenance and troubleshooting industry. This includes work in Advanced Manufacturing Facilities and companies that use underwater robots. The techniques used in both industries are similar and there is significant crossover between the two. Upon completion of the Electrical Technology Certificate of Achievement and the Automation Technician Certificate of Achievement, the student will be able to install, maintain, and repair automation systems in a safe and workmanlike manner.
Program Student Learning Outcomes
- Develop procedures for the successful installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of robotic, PLC and automation control systems.
Program Admission Requirement
New students must attend an Electrical orientation prior to enrollment. The program requisite is in place to ensure the safety and health awareness of LBCC electrical students.
