Provide a forecast of what the workforce demand would be over a five-year period to produce and market your team’s technical application or process. Include the impact such production would have on the marketplace.
Give two examples of undergraduate or graduate degree programs in science or engineering that directly relate to your team's NCT technical application. For each program, be sure to include the following:
Robotics and Manufacturing
Robots are cool – and lucrative. As the workforce continues to age, more and more workers will be needed in all aspects of manufacturing technology and that includes operating and maintaining industrial robots. It also includes everything from machining and milling (Machine Tool Technology) to designing and operating the electronic systems that control the manufacturing process. Dunwoody’s Robotics and Manufacturing programs train professionals in all aspects of manufacturing and packaging, and the job market in these industries remains hot.
Dunwoody’s Robotic and Manufacturing programs include:
A robotics revolution is underway, and a new breed of engineers will be needed to face the challenges that this exciting field represents. WPI, the leader in project-based education, continues its pioneering tradition by developing the nation's first bachelor's degree program in robotics engineering. In 2009, WPI also announced the introduction of the Robotics Engineering master's program.
Develop an idea for a new science and/or engineering degree program that might emerge given the advancements in scientific knowledge that the team has identified. Provide a title and 100-word description of this new degree program.
My new science degree program is called Hands on Robotics. This new degree specializes in the assembly and disassembly of robots. It helps with the all around skills meant to use the hands and mind. It will challenge you mentally but also help with actually knowing how to assemble the robot or robots you are an expert on. This degree will help you in the real world by knowing the hands on skills needed to not only build robots but other mechanical devices in the world. So in conclusion this new degree will help you with many mechanical and mental assemblies of robots in the world.
