Collaborative Robotics

Are you interested in a career in Robotics?

Wake Tech has worked closely with an advisory board of local employers to create a certification series that will train you for local jobs! Employers are eager to hire completers of the stackable Collaborative Robotics Certificate program. There are three certificates in the series: Technician I, Technician II, and Programmer.

What is a collaborative robot?

Collaborative robots, or “co-robots,” are light, industrial robots that work alongside humans. They must be programmed and operated by technicians with specialized skills.

Wake Tech now has two co-robots, the YuMi built by ABB, which is a two-armed robot capable of lifting up to seven lbs, and the UR10 single-armed robot, which can lift up to 75 lbs. Learn how to maintain and program both of these incredible machines!

What will you learn about collaborative robots at Wake Tech?

Wake Tech received a generous grant, called Robotics Awake, from the National Science Foundation to work with industry partners to develop a curriculum for operation and programming of collaborative robots for manufacturing. The curriculum will include stackable certificates: Collaborative Robotics Technician and Collaborative Robotics Programmer Technician. NSF Grant DUE: 1700468

Technician Courses:
Study the principles of collaborative robotics, their uses and applications, and proper operation and maintenance through online learning modules and hands-on lab exercises. This fascinating course includes materials from Tooling University On-Line covering topics such as workplace safety; blueprint reading; basics of electrical theory, programmable logic controller theory, and pneumatic theory; robotic connectivity; customer service; and basics of collaborative robotic programming and troubleshooting.

Programmer Course:
Learn a more advanced understanding of robot operations and programming, material handling techniques, technical system components, and 2D integrated robot vision guidance. The Programmer will be able to reteach points, install a program, verify safety functionality, maintain backup, change machine modes, understand floating points, and recover from a crash.
