Revamping Robotics Education to Meet 2st Century Workforce Needs
Workshop Overview: The interdisciplinary nature of robots make robotics a useful STEM pedagogical tool. There is also significant need for industrial certification programs in robotics. Robots are increasingly used across industry sectors to improve production throughputs while maintaining product quality. The benefits of robotics, however, depend on workers with up-to-date knowledge and skills to maintain and use existing robots, enhance future technologies, and educate users. It is critical that education efforts respond to the demand for robotics specialists by offering courses and professional certification in robotics and automation. This NSF sponsored workshop introduces a new approach for teaching Industrial Robotics in electrical engineering technology programs to match industry needs and provide a replicable model for programs around the US.
Who should attend: This workshop is offered to faculty members of two and four year institutions and designed for the instructors who wish to increase their experience in Industrial Robotics and is interested in revamping existing or developing courses in Industrial Robotics.
