BAS, Cyber-Physical Manufacturing

Program Description

The Cyber-Physical Manufacturing program offers training to meet the changing manufacturing environment associated with the 4th Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0). Students will utilize state-of-the-art equipment and simulations to analyze and apply advanced technical skills in the operation, design and maintenance of product identification systems, programming of cell robots, networks and cybersecurity systems, production planning and control using a manufacturing execution system (MES); programming for Industry 4.0; human-machine interfaces (HMIs); and smart maintenance.
