Course Number & Name: MET 202 Modern Manufacturing Systems and Robotics
Credit Hours: 4.0 Contact Hours: 6.0 Lecture: 3.0 Lab: 3.0 Other: N/A
Course Description: This course introduces the concept of computer integrated manufacturing systems through the use of a flexible manufacturing center comprised of a number of workcells. It covers communication between the individual process controllers and a factory control system. Robot operation and programming is introduced. The course also covers the mechanical aspects of material manipulation, various feedback mechanisms, and the integration of robots with other machines in the workcell. The student applies the design concept and techniques to develop a machine tool operation system. Field trips to assembly plants are included.
<!–Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- use cutting tools, machine tools, and workholding devices to carry out machining processes; and
- discuss and implement robotics classification, safety, and programming.
