Find better ways to manufacture products through the production process while ensuring efficient use of personnel and resources.

Automation and Systems Integration Engineering Technology

This is one of three majors offered for students who seek to contribute at the interface between manufacturing, electrical, mechanical, and computing areas in primarily industrial environments.

When you major in automation and systems integration engineering technology, you will  address what is needed to move product concepts into efficient, automated production. The curriculum focuses on the entire design and manufacturing process; you’ll understand how each team member benefits the system.

Special Features

  • Learn in a hands-on environment with a 1,400-square-foot, fully functional, automated manufacturing laboratory
  • Focus on applying and implementing technology, in a hands-on approach, to solve real-world problems.
  • Explore a wide range of career options in product improvement, industrial processes, or plant operations
  • Utilize the Polytechnic learning environment to become a career-ready graduate

Where can I go?

Rockwell Automation
The wide scope of things we learn about and the diversity we experience are the favorite things about my major. For instance, I love robotics and wanted to study abroad, so I went on a Spring Break trip to Germany. We saw robotics at BMW and Audi, with a cultural immersion twist!
