Development of Articulated Competency-Based Curriculum in Automated Systems/Robotics Technology. Final Report.
Luzerne County Community Coll., Nanticoke, PA.
A project was conducted at the Community College of Luzerne County (Pennsylvania) to develop, in cooperation with area vocational-technical schools, the first year of a competency-based curriculum in automated systems/robotics. Existing programs were reviewed by the task force and a list of sample competencies was developed and sent to area manufacturers for a rating of task importance. The results of these efforts and the curriculum itself are presented in three sections. The first section covers general business/industry trends; Automated Systems/Robotics Technology curriculum; articulation; and a proposed second-year course listing. The second section of the curriculum guide lists educational specifications for the robotics laboratory and the fluid power laboratory, and the final section lists equipment specifications. Appendixes to the report list the task force members, describe the literature search, and provide a task listing with manufacturers' ratings. Sample task force letters complete the report. (KC)
