Involves developing and designing a project as the culminating course in the Electromechanical program. By creating a fully-functional automation system, the learner will tie together all of the concepts learned in previous courses. The project will consist of a machine of the student's choosing, and it will be automatically controlled by an industrial controller or computer. Systems analysis, problem solving and group cooperation are emphasized throughout the course.
