Automated systems information session to be held July 24

Macomb Community College is hosting an information session Wednesday, July 24, 6 p.m., for two manufacturing automated systems career paths, maintenance technician and robotic programming. The sessions will introduce the fields, highlight the classes necessary to pursue these in-demand pathways and present how interested participants may qualify to attend the program at no cost.

“Today’s manufacturing facilities depend on skilled employees to keep their advanced equipment operating in optimal condition,” said Susan Corey, administrator, Workforce and Continuing Education, Macomb Community College. “These programs are perfect for the motivated person looking to enter this field or move up to a new position.”

The maintenance technician pathway is for students who want to concentrate on the mechanical aspects of manufacturing. Coursework in this program includes an introduction to fluid power, electrical fundamentals and motor control, and will build an overall knowledge of the expertise needed to install, troubleshoot and repair essential mechanisms.

The robot programmer pathway prepares students to enter the field of robotics, teaching how to create, execute and test robot trajectories and programs necessary in the contemporary manufacturing industry.

Funding is available through Michigan Works! for qualified unemployed or underemployed students to cover some or all of the cost of the classes.

The information session will be held at Macomb’s M-TEC facility at 7900 Tank Avenue, Warren MI. To register or for more information, call 586.498.4100 or email hausera@macomb.edu.
