This program prepares students interested in pursuing careers in robotics or engineering by providing the pre-engineering and robotics skills necessary for entry into post-secondary education programs. Students are challenged to think critically, solve problems and apply technology-based tools effectively and safely. They also learn the skills necessary to communicate clearly, cooperate within teams, solve mathematical, scientific and logistical problems and present findings.
Robotics Engineering introduces students to embedded technology concepts through a combination of classroom lecture and project-based learning. Students learn to design, build, communicate and operate robotic automation equipment. At the culmination of this class, they will compete head-to-head against their peers in the classroom or in area competitions against other high school students.
Students earn 15 general elective units each semester toward their high school graduation.
College prep course. Meets area “G” approval for UC admission.
Robotics Engineering is articulated with the Bakersfield College courses ELECT B1 Basic Electronics and ELET B5 Programmable Logic Controllers. ROC students meeting BC’s established criteria will earn up to 6 units of BC credit in addition to the above high school credit.
