Industrial Robotics and Programming
This 2-credit course introduces students to industrial robotics and programming. Through the course, students learn how "to program a FANUC industrial robot and earn FANUC CERT Certification. Students develop frames, learn file manipulation and program the robot to manipulate products, perform different tasks based on I/O conditions, and utilize variables." The course also explores robotic power supplies, end of arm tooling, and control systems.
The following are an example of competencies assessed in the course:
- Manipulate the robot in world and joint mode.
- Program tool, user, and jog frames.
- Manipulate files in the control system.
- Program movements with the different forms of motion commands.
Course materials are housed within a Canvas .imscc file. Materials include syllabi, presentation slides, and lab documents. Both syllabi include a brief description about the course, information about grading, course policies, and a course schedule.
For orientation purposes Robot Prog LakeviewSyllabus.docx.pdf is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this curriculum.
