Robotic Welding Advanced Certificate

Robotic Welding Advanced Certificate

Program Description

The Robotic Welding Advanced Certificate is an add-on certificate for both the Robotics Automated Systems Technology A.A.S. Degree and Diploma programs. Robotic welding is a widely used process for fabrication in the manufacturing industry. This certificate prepares students to use robotics for the welding process.

Program Outcomes

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

  • Identify and configure multiple weld procedures, weld schedules, and weave schedules;
  • Create welding programs and use techniques found in the industrial robotic welding industry;
  • Configure and utilize advanced welding programming options;
  • Create virtual robotic systems using proprietary software packages commonly used in the robotics industry;
  • Create and develop robot programs in the virtual environment; and
  • Deploy virtual simulation programs to physical robotic systems.

Career Opportunities

This certificate prepares students for career opportunities working with robotic welding systems for system integrators, original equipment manufacturers, and robot manufacturers. Career opportunities also include robotic welding systems 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 robotic welding and programming.
