Manufacturing and Automation

This manufacturing course is designed to provide students with experience in the creation of a design, prepare the design for machining and design the automation necessary to control the process. This course will challenge students to collaboratively solve design problems working in teams to research and report findings, and will prepare students to obtain Siemens PLC and Solid Edge certifications. The Siemens manufacturing course utilizes various Siemens’ software as tools for problem solving and preparing solutions. The goal of the course is the application of the tools to address unique problems allowing the students to rapidly create and analyze proposed solutions.
