The Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology Department at Vermont Technical College invites applications for Fall 2022 (August 22, 2022 – December 17, 2022)
The course to be taught is MEC 3120 Advanced Manufacturing & Automation
This course explores the mechanical aspects of machines and the associated electronic, pneumatic, and fluid-powered components that work together for automated manufacturing and production control including drive mechanisms for feeds, speeds, and power utilization for each component in the manufacturing line such as conveyors, robotic arms, PLCs, machine tools, and workstations. It incorporates the variability in products manufactured in relationship to the equipment capacities. The student learns computer simulation and engages in hands-on production set-ups as well as automated visual and tactile inspection techniques that guarantee product quality. Each mechanism applies the learned aspects to the specifications, functions, and safe operation associated with modern advanced manufacturing. Emphasis is on effective workplace skills including teamwork, problem solving, integrity, and dependability.
1 Hour of Lecture-4 Hours of Lab per week
Candidates may and are encouraged to apply to multiple Part Time opportunities but may not be considered for more than 9 credit hours per semester, per VSC-VSCPTF Bargaining Unit Agreement.
