NextGen Technicians: Robotics
Dynamic. Exciting. Cutting-Edge. Are you looking for an education in technology that could turn your interest in robotics into a high-paying career? With two grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), NIACC has expanded robotics education through two projects: NextGen Technicians: Addressing Industry Demand for Robotics (Grant No. 1901957) and Advancing NextGen Technicians: Addressing New Industry Demand for Robotics Because of COVID-19 (Grant No. 2055293). The NextGen Technicians projects are advancing NIACC’s Industrial Systems Technology (IST) an Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance programs in new directions, creating innovative opportunities for students to reach new heights in leading-edge technologies.
I think it’s exciting to be involved in a growing trade that has so few women in it. It makes me feel the drive to excel knowing that I’m an example.
