Dunwoody Automated Systems & Robotics

Prepare yourself for employment in the manufacturing industry by earning an Automated Systems & Robotics degree.

Get hands-on experience with mechanical systems, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and industrial robotics.

Learn on state-of-the-industry equipment, including Fanuc-certified industrial robots, Cognex vision systems, and Arduino microcontroller trainers.

Throughout the program, you’ll be able to conceptualize a task and program a robot to complete it—such as playing a song on a keyboard, sorting items by color, writing and erasing message, and more.

These and additional hands-on projects will prepare you to support engineers and other professionals who develop and use robots and other automated systems.

Dunwoody’s program curriculum is aligned with standards set forth by:

  • Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI)
  • Institute of Packing Professionals (IoPP)
  • Robotics Industry Association (RIA)
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
  • Instrumentation Society of America (ISA)

This means that you graduate with the skills and credentials you need to get a good job in a wide variety of manufacturing-related industries.

This degree directly transfers into Dunwoody’s Bachelor of Science in Automation & Controls Engineering Technology or the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering Technology.
