Ivy Tech Community College is now a Motoman-endorsed robotics instructor training (MERIT) center. The program helps community colleges and universities bring Motoman training to the regional manufacturing work force.
Initially the Columbus, Ind., campus of Ivy Tech will deliver the DX100 Basic Programming course, with possible expansion to include other courses and other campuses. The college can offer training in a flexible format and schedule that best meets the needs of students.
"Robotics is critical to Indiana's advanced manufacturing sector, and as companies strive to increase efficiencies, the use of automated technologies will continue to grow,” said Thomas J. Snyder, president of Ivy Tech.
