Effective May 2023
Division of Engineering, Business and Information Technologies
Integration is a key word in advanced technologies: combining different automated equipment, such as robots, into coordinated systems that complete specific tasks like loading/unloading machines, sorting, inspecting, and assembling parts. The automation engineering technology degree will train students to be a systems specialist. Concentration of abilities for installing and operating robots and other industrial material handling and processing technologies, as well as engineer and program equipment for systems integration. Graduates go on to become a systems design technician, factory sales/service representative, applications engineer, installation supervisor, systems integrator or production supervisor. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College’s University Partnership.
