Industrial Robotics IISKET 262
Prerequisite: SKET 162. Emphasizes programming, advanced manipulation, grip load instructions, velocity, and acceleration instruction, offline editing, handling errors, and robot configuration. Discusses programming concepts and structures in the C+ programming language, industry-like applications and system integration projects. Emphasizes a hands-on approach to system analysis, critical thinking, solutions to open-ended problems, computer usage, and teamwork. Credit may be earned in SKET 262 or ET 262 but not both. (15-30)
