I. Catalog Course Description
Prerequisites: AIT 253
Covers content specifically outlined by the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Program (SMSCP) exam objectives and is part of a six-course series to prepare students for the SMSCP Level 2 industry credential exam. Course is divided into two main sections: Manufacturing Technologies, including CNC, CAD and CAM, and Microcontrollers and Programming, which constitute essential tools in modern manufacturing, particularly in mechatronic systems. Introduces through the microcontroller section the theory behind microcontroller and microprocessor architecture, and its ways of interaction with other electronic elements to explore applications. This theory is complemented with practical exercises that reflect the importance of microcontrollers in a mechatronic system. Covers an exploration of manufacturing automation and the concepts of Metal Cutting, Modal analysis, CNC, CAM and CAD. Provides students with part of the skill set necessary to maintain and improve mechatronic systems.
