Robotics: the exciting world where electronics, fabrication, automation and control, and YOUR imagination, merge to create technology solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts.
The Casper College Associate of Applied Science Robotics Technology program provides the skill set essential as a technician in a wide range of industries from energy to manufacturing and communications to warehousing.
Robotics provides industry applications such as robotic welding, robotic palatalizing, conveyor systems, material handling and many more that are involved in industries such as manufacturing, energy, and medical. These are all industries that need precision, strength, speed, and accuracy. The Casper College Robotics Department works with local and national businesses to provide the hands on robotic education to help you succeed in one the hottest industry careers.
Casper College's robotics program provides the skills necessary to maintain robotic machines in industrial settings by incorporating the basics of mechanical structure and motion, electronic control and visions, and robot programming. Many dangerous manufacturing and industrial applications are turning to the use of robotic machinery. Graduates of this program will become the workforce that maintains, repairs, and modifies robots of the future.
What's the difference between a degree and a certificate?
The A.A.S. degree program covers more courses; in addition to general education and drafting course, students enroll in robotics, machine tool and electronics courses.
The certificate only covers the robotics, machine tool, and electronics courses.
Most companies want someone with an A.AS. degree, who has taken the general education courses along with the technical courses.
Service Learning is our way of giving back to our communities. We are funded, encouraged, and mentored by members of our communities and we enjoy taking time as a group to assist in meeting the needs of our community as a way of saying thank you.
Service Learning opportunities we have supported include:
- Platte River Revival: cleaning up brush, trash, and planting trees along the Platte River Pathway is a fun fall activity in which hundreds of community members participate. We see these same folks every year and haul tons of pruned tree limbs and trash. We have even pulled a car out of the river.
- Casper Children’s Theater: providing scary automated props for a haunted house and staffing the event provides fun and assists this community youth group with fundraising. Our robotic skills help scary faces jump out of the darkness and delight the thrill seekers.
- FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC): we support our upcoming roboteers by hosting FTC scrimmages, robot build days, and the upcoming Wyoming FTC Regional. Our skill sets of programming, robot design, and mentoring come in handy as we assist our junior high and high school students have fun with science, math, and technology.
