The AART program allows students to gain real-world experience through a paid internship at various local companies that allow students to work several days a week.

“Automation and Robotics is probably one of the fastest going fields in manufacturing. In order for companies to be competitive, they have to automate their faculties’ so that they are producing high quality, high quantity, and repeatable products over-and-over. That takes a very high-skilled technician” said Bob Parker, AART Program chair.
