Robotic & Automated Manufacturing (AAS.CIM)

This program is designed to give the student a broad background in the basics of robotics, automation, mechanics, fluid power, CAD, electronics and computer applications in manufacturing. Graduates will be prepared for the manufacturing jobs of the future in positions such as CAD/CAM operator/designer, manufacturing engineering technician, quality control technician, robotics technician, CNC operator/programmer, CIM or Automation Technician. Employment opportunities exist in many types of manufacturing industries, service industries and consulting firms. Upon completion, students can also receive other industry recognized certificates from Lake Land, Fanuc, OSHA, AutoCad, Industrial Robotics, and others. Students planning to continue their education at Eastern Illinois University or Southern Illinois University to earn a bachelor's degree in Industrial or Engineering Technology should consult their advisor/counselor for course requirements and substitutions.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
