WARREN — The first class of Macomb Community College students has earned the Macomb-FANUC (Factory Automated Numerical Control) Robotics joint certificate of completion.
One of the college’s newest offerings in its robotics program, the certificate program gives students the opportunity to become adept in the latest automation technology.
Introduced into Macomb’s robotics program in September 2010, the Macomb-FANUC certificate is applicable to a wide range of industrial applications including the aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, food, metal fabrication, medical, pharmaceutical and solar panel industries.
Macomb’s FANUC certificate program introduces students to robotic applications such as integrated vision systems (iRVision), while teaching them how to program the robots, identify components through a vision system and act on the components through an error handling process or a programmed parameter.
Ten students received their FANUC robotics iRVision certificate in the 64-hour program, which is conducted during a 16-week period.
No previous robotics experience is required for Macomb’s FANUC robotics certificate, and each session can accommodate up to 15 students at a time. For more information about the program, call (586) 445-7435 or visit www.macomb.edu.
