This self-study course is designed to be taken at your convenience and on your own schedule. You have 90 days to finish the course from the time of purchase.

When it comes to manufacturing, speed, efficiency, quality maximization, and cost reduction are hallmarks of the six-axis robot.  Learn key foundational knowledge of the anatomy that goes into this rapidly developing articulated robot.  Discuss the fundamental concepts and terminology that small-to-major manufacturers are using to strengthen industries across the U.S. You will gain valuable skills in the specification of robotic properties such as payload and reach requirements, while learning how to startup, shutdown, and jog six-axis systems. 
Benefits for the learner: 

  • Acquire general and vocational knowledge of the process of industrial automation 
  • Gain knowledge of engineering experience and skills and apply it to real world case studies 
  • Apply new insights to make important decisions and business considerations  
  • Understand the human and social impacts of industrial automation 
  • Acquire new career goals in a rapidly growing field 

Who should attend:

  • All engineers across various fields (i.e. mechanical, electrical, computer, etc.) without formal training in robotics from previous academic programs 
  • Individuals who are considering a career in industrial robotics automation 
  • Working engineers in small to mid-size manufacturing companies looking to add robotic automation to their manufacturing process 
  • Owners and managers of companies seeking a greater understanding of robotic integration into manufacturing processes 

Course participants are expected to: 

  • Have fundamental engineering knowledge 
  • Be familiar with engineering ethics, such as ASME’s Code of Ethics of Engineers 
  • Ideally, have some experience working in the manufacturing industry
