CNC Robotic Tending Students

Program Details

The CNC Robotic Tending and Integration Certificate in Technical Studies program is a 12 credit program designed to be completed in the course of a year. This certificate will prepare students to apply technical knowledge and skills to plan and integrate robots to tend modern manufacturing systems. This planning and integration includes critical skills in "effector design" and risk management as well as adaptive process automation necessary to the modern application of robotics to machine tending. It is structured so that students may take one or two courses at a time and in any order to allow for ease of access for both current student and incumbent workers.

Successful students will have the ability to:

  • Design and construct robotic automation workflows for unattended CNC operations.
  • Design macros and probing to automate process modifications to maintain in-process accuracy.
  • Develop system-based risk management procedures to mitigate automated process risks.
  • Design and use a variety of end effectors and grippers for robotic tending.


CNC Robotic Tending and Integration students at Gallatin College MSU go into careers such as:

  • Robotics Technician
  • Automation Specialist
  • Robotics Machine Operator
