Program Mission, Description, and Outcomes Mission:
The Simulation and Robotics Technology program prepares students with basic electronics skills and technical credentials needed for high technology careers in simulator installation, maintenance, service and support. Students also acquire skills required for specific simulator operation, testing, and troubleshooting. This program incorporates innovative teaching methods using the latest technology, thus improving student knowledge and encouraging their success. After completion, students may seek career jobs or transition into baccalaureate programs.

Description:
The Simulation and Robotics Technology program provides students with the technical credentials needed for high technology careers in simulator installation, maintenance, service and support. This program provides a thorough foundation in basic electronics and computer networking. Students also acquire skills required for specific simulator operation, testing, and troubleshooting.

Outcomes:
Graduates of the program will be able to:
1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, basic science, and engineering to solve problems encompassing the fundamental areas of simulation and robotics technology.
2. Apply knowledge of one or more disciplines to the operation and maintenance of simulation and robotics systems.
3. Identify and apply software solutions appropriate to simulation and robotics systems.
4. Conduct experiments to acquire needed data, and to analyze and interpret data to solve engineering technology problems.
5. Use computers and other modern tools and skills to solve technical problems.
6. Function as a member of a multidisciplinary team in the solution of engineering problems.
7. Demonstrate proficiency in communicating ideas and information orally and in writing.
8. Relate the need for, and an ability to learn new concepts as required within the field of simulation and robotics technology.
9. Comprehend ethical responsibility and professional integrity issues related to the practice of simulation and robotics technology.
10. Comprehend contemporary technological and societal issues, and the impact of technology on society in both a local and global context.


Note: This program is eligible for federal financial aid and state bright futures.

Approximate Additional Costs Lab fees will be assessed for courses requiring specialized tools/equipment. See catalog descriptions for program specific courses.

Additional Admission Requirements It may be necessary for the student to enroll in a college preparatory English, Math, or Reading course depending upon college placement test scores.
