Robotics Training Courses for Engineers to be Offered in Fall 2021 at EWI

July 22, 2021

The EWI Skillform Center is pleased to offer a range of robotics courses in September and October 2021. These practical courses are specially designed to help engineers with minimal experience in robotics gain the knowledge needed to bring automation into a production setting. This training series, directed by Senior Automation Engineer Mike Garman, is taught in the automation labs at EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works in Western New York. Each course offers opportunity for hands-on instruction and practice.

The three courses vary in length to cover the subject material. Professional development hours (PDH) can be earned for each one:

  • Robotic Basics: A Hands-on Workshop provides a practical introduction to both static industrial and collaborative robot (“cobot”) platforms. In a single day, this lab-based crash course covers basic programming moves, end-of-arm tooling options, common applications, and safety considerations. The course will be taught on Wednesday, September 1. (6 PDH)
  • Robotic Fundamentals & Applications gives engineering professionals a broad overview of robotic technology, applications, and operations. Through a mix of in-class and hands-on instruction, students quickly gain familiarity with both industrial and collaborative platforms and acquire a critical base of robotic knowledge that can later be applied in the workplace. The course will take place on September 22-23. (15 PDH)
  • Robotic Integration is a five-day intensive that prepares students to return to their workplaces with the necessary skills and knowledge to implement robotic automation on site. The curriculum covers robotic selection, operation, and set up; safety standards; electrical and pneumatic interfacing; basic and intermediate programming; and applications programming. At the end of the week, participants will have wired and assembled a fully functioning robotics cell. This immersive class will be offered the week of October 18-22. (35 PDH)
