Electromechanical automation and manufacturing is an evolving, high-tech field, with applications in such areas as aerospace, food processing, and the pharmaceutical industry. It offers some of the highest salaries in the industrial sector, along with ample opportunities for rapid advancement. Automation and manufacturing technicians are responsible for production operation, as well as equipment monitoring, adjustment, maintenance, and repair in both routine and emergency situations. Using modern industrial production equipment, DACC’s Automation and Manufacturing Technology program provides training for desirable entry level positions in electromechanical automated processes, as well as skills upgrading for those already working in the field. The program encourages the development of problem-solving skills, enabling students to adapt quickly to rapidly changing conditions brought on by automation and new technologies. The program is based on skills standards established for the high-tech manufacturing industry by the American Electronics Association’s Workforce Skills Project, among others. Students learn systems interfacing and automation using digital control circuits, programmable logic controllers (PLC), and computer-controlled interfaces. Hands-on preventive and corrective maintenance procedures are taught in modern laboratory facilities using the same state-of-the-art, automated production equipment found in the manufacturing industry.
