Training designed to prepare you for the workforce of the future

Offered by ASU’s AZNext program and the Manufacturing, Automation and Data Engineering Science and Technology Center, or MADE STC, and instructed by Sangram Redkar, associate professor in the School of Manufacturing Systems and Networks at ASU, students can expect to gain skills in problem-solving, communications, professional networking and programming, as well as:

  • Clean room robotics.
  • Designing attributes of atmospheric robots.
  • Designing vacuum robots.
  • Kinematics of industrial robots.
  • Dynamics and control of industrial robots.
  • Robot calibration and troubleshooting.
  • Clean room requirements.

Why is robotics in microelectronics and manufacturing important?

Industrial robots in advanced manufacturing settings are intended to operate at high speeds or in dangerous environments to keep up with high-tech demands. As a result, there is an increased need for trained technicians and engineers to design, program, troubleshoot and maintain these robots.
