Students interested in boosting a current career or jumpstarting a new one may consider earning a diploma. These programs focus on teaching specific skills. Most require less than two years to earn.

What is a diploma in automation? This field of study generally focuses on creating and maintaining automated machines. Students often can choose from various programs but will typically learn to use various physical tools in a hands-on environment to build and repair various equipment, including computer numerical controlled machines and robots. Lessons may focus on topics such as electrical circuits, CNC programming, sensors, mathematics, design and fabrication techniques. This area of study also can give students the chance to be on the cutting edge of technology and gain experience in management.

Besides the technical skills, students also have the potential to hone their ability to think critically and work as part of a team. They can gain knowledge in project management, which could positively influence future career endeavors.

Tuition for a diploma program will depend on duration of the program and chosen school. Additionally, the cost often differs between schools.  

As businesses seek to become more efficient, automation is becoming more prevalent across industries. From manufacturing to packaging, automotive to product distribution, and construction to environmental, skilled automation experts are needed for various lines of work. Career options for students earning a diploma in automation include calibration mechanic, controls technician and CNC programmer. An understanding of the complex systems used in automation can also lead to careers as an analyst, sales engineer or robotics manager. For students already in the workforce, earning this diploma may help in being promoted to a project manager or manufacturing engineer. 

Online courses are available for some specific automation diplomas. The majority of schools have on-site studies to allow for a hands-on approach. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
