Robotics, Automation, & Engineering
Robotics and Engineering is a Chapter 74 Certified program for students who are interested in designing and building things. Students in this program will learn to design and build mechanical and electrical devices ranging from an electronic circuit used to control a matrix of LEDs (light emitting diodes), to a fully functional custom-built robot. In addition to physically building devices, students will learn to write code, the instructions that run everything from Facebook to your refrigerator.
Freshman and sophomore students will focus on learning the fundamentals of engineering and robotics through hands-on projects. Junior and senior students will be expected to design and develop independent projects with an emphasis on real-world projects that solve a need of the community. For example, one of our students has already been featured in the Boston Globe for creating a tele-presence robot that enabled a teacher to participate in the classroom while out on medical leave.
