Automation Technology

Most people are fascinated by the end product, but there are a few who find the steps leading up to it more interesting. If you fall into the second category and want to create, fine-tune and maintain the processes used to accomplish something, automation technology may be the field for you. 

If you choose a career in this field, your day-to-day job responsibilities will include the application of electrical and mechanical skills for developing, installing, programming, and troubleshooting the complex machinery and sensors found in the modern manufacturing environment. You may work with programmable logic controllers (PLCs), hydraulic and pneumatic control systems, actuator and senor systems, and robotics. And you can learn it all at Waubonsee.
