The Automation Maintenance Engineering Technology program prepares the student to diagnose troubleshoot and repair automated manufacturing lines and equipment. The program includes both electrical and mechanical training, but also specific automation maintenance industrial programming including programmable logic controllers (industrial computers) and robotics. Included in the course work are theoretical and hands on training related with Programmable Logic Controllers, Industrial Motor Controls, Power Transmission and Fluid Power. Students completing this program will find careers as electrical maintenance technicians, automation maintenance technicians, maintenance technicians, or controls technicians. The associate’s degree also prepares students to move into a maintenance supervision role in their career.
Program Learning Outcomes
This program is designed to prepare students to demonstrate the following learning outcomes:
- Identify, select, and operate appropriate test equipment and tools, and interpret test results to solve problems in a controlled environment.
Use team skills to collaborate and perform in a professional and workman like fashion in a diverse workforce and a dynamic environment to meet organizational goals and objectives.
Apply appropriate Math, Science, and computer skills to support installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of electrical equipment and systems.
Utilize effective communication, time management and conflict management skills to propose solutions to technical problems to supervisors and team members.
Diagnose and resolve equipment problems by utilizing good technical assessment skills that include planning, reliability, logical thinking, ability to use drawings, schematics and documentation, and a fundamental understanding of electrical maintenance theory and principles.
Work with a safety-focuses mindset and follow industry safety standards, local regulations, and company policies and procedures.
Apply the fundamentals of electrical skills to install, troubleshoot, and maintain electrical equipment, such as advanced PLCs, commercial wiring, motors, and motor controls in compliance with the National Electric Code.
Employ cross-functional skills to differentiate between hydraulics/pneumatics, mechanical, and welding systems, and isolate and resolve breakdown(s).
