Robotics and Automated Manufacturing

Mechanical Engineering Summer Camp 

Have you ever watched How’s it Made? Do you find yourself surfing YouTube and viewing videos of robots and machines doing amazing things? If so then this I the camp is for you! In this camp we’ll learn how to design and manufacture parts with state of the art computer controlled (cnc) machines and how to program robots to automatically assemble parts into finished products. You’ll learn about and use computer-aided design software, computer-aided manufacturing software, 3D printing, jigs & fixtures, end of arm tooling, and robot work cell simulation software. You will work with state of the art industrial robots and learn how to program them. You’ll design and make your own end of arm tooling, jigs & fixtures, and robot programs to produce a fully automated manufacturing work cell.
