Robotic Human Machine Interface Advanced Certificate

Robotic Human Machine Interface Advanced Certificate

Program Description

The Robotic Human Machine Interface (HMI) Advanced Certificate is an add-on certificate for both the Robotics Automated Systems Technology A.A.S. Degree and Diploma programs. HMI control panels are widely used in the manufacturing industry for operator control of robotic and automated systems. This certificate prepares students to program and interface HMI devices into robotic and automated systems.

Program Outcomes

By completing this program, students will achieve the following learning outcomes:

  • Identify, select, and configure HMI device hardware;
  • Integrate HMI devices into robotic and automated systems; and
  • Create HMI operator control graphical interface code.

Career Opportunities

This certificate prepares students for career opportunities working with HMI operator control panels for system integrators, original equipment manufacturers, and robot manufacturers. Career opportunities also include working with HMI control panels in the automotive, aerospace, medical, machine tool, packaging, welding, and nuclear power industries. Career titles include Robotic Automated Systems Technician, Field Servicing Technician, and Electrical Controls Technician with specific responsibilities in HMI setup and programming.

Program Admission Requirements
