ARM projects facilitate the creation of diverse teams that combine perspective from industry and academia to solve complex problems affecting the national manufacturing workforce. This project uses stackable credentials resulting in a certification.


This project centers on the creation of modules to facilitate stackable credentials in robotics and automation that culminate in a Robotic Systems Certificate. The project includes the development of virtual reality supplements. In addition to student-focused modules, the project includes a careers pathway focus to educate students, counselors, and parents about careers in robotics-enabled industries.
