Dunwoody Industrial Controls & Robotics

Manufacturing continues to automate, and the demand for employees who understand robotic systems is growing. Industrial Controls & Robotics is a two-year degree program for students interested in the field of robotics who need to take courses during the evening.

Learn how to create and read engineering drawings, including 3D modeling with SolidWorks.

Get hands-on experience with industry-standard technologies like electronic sensors, motion-control systems, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

Program, maintain, and service the latest technology in manufacturing, packaging, and industrial robotic systems, including Dunwoody’s Fanuc robots.

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 have a successful career 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.
