Robotics, Automation and Control Certificate
Robots and automated systems have been in general use in the manufacturing industry since the early 1980s. The systems have seen wide acceptance in high-volume manufacturing for many years. As systems mature, they are becoming cost effective for low-volume production in the local manufacturing sector. This has led to a need to train industry staff in the development and maintenance of automated systems.
