Omron Advanced Automation Lab

The Omron Advanced Automation Lab further strengthens the connection between engineering and business by combining innovative industrial automation and robotics technology with supply chain platforms. The lab educates both engineering and business students on fundamental and higher levels of how to implement Industry 4.0 into the design, manufacturing and delivery of products.

Lab stations are designed to teach students the foundational building blocks of industrial automation, a manufacturing area where subsystems can be combined to produce a product, and a library of components that will challenge students to identify what components are necessary to complete their tasks.
