成功完成自动化工程技术课程, the student should be able to:

  1. 规划和构建商业和工业电机控制电路. 
  2. 识别,解释和故障排除液压/气动回路. 
  3. 使用适当的指令集编写各种简单的PLC程序,并对PLC应用适当的故障排除方法. 
  4. 了解自动化的基本概念和知识, robotic and data communication systems. 
  5. 正确运用一般机械维修知识.  

自动化工程技术课程的学习使学生能够运用基本的工程原理和技术技能来开发, install, calibrate, modify and maintain automated systems. Includes instruction in computer systems; electronics and instrumentation; programmable logic controllers (PLCs); electric, hydraulic and pneumatic control systems; actuator and sensor systems; process control; robotics; applications to specific industrial tasks. 本课程的毕业生将为在使用控制系统的行业就业做好准备, computer hardware and software, electrical, 自动化系统中的机械和机电设备. The essential functions include:

  1. Reaction Time: The ability to quickly respond (with the hand, finger, or foot) to a signal (sound, light, picture) when it appears. Ability to safely operate in and around electricity. 例如,能够观察和监控PLC中接近开关的工作.
  2. Near Vision: 近距离观察细节的能力(距离观察者几英尺内). Visual skills sufficient to see details at close range, ability to distinguish colors, shades, and textures, visual skills to inspect or assess for safety.
  3. Multi-Limb Coordination: The ability to coordinate two or more limbs (for example, two arms, two legs, or one leg and one arm) while sitting, standing, or lying down. 它不涉及在整个身体运动的情况下进行活动. 例如,更换已被确定为坏的电机的能力.
  4. Manual Dexterity: The ability to quickly move your hand, your hand together with your arm, or your two hands to grasp, manipulate, or assemble objects. Example is to be able to rebuild a solenoid valve.
  5. Arm-Hand Steadiness: 在移动手臂或将手臂和手保持在一个位置时保持手和手臂稳定的能力. Example is the ability to change bearings in a piece equipment.
  6. Finger Dexterity: 用一只手或两只手的手指精确地协调动作来抓握的能力, manipulate, or assemble very small objects. Example is to be able to start a nut on a bolt.
