W.I.R.E.D. (Welding, Innovation, Robotics, Engineering and Design) is an introduction to the research, design, and development of manufactured products using advanced technologies as well as industrial maintenance principles. It incorporates training in modern equipment including: Electronics, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Mechanical Drives, Mechatronics,  GMAW (MIG Welding), SMAW (Stick Welding), GTAW (TIG Welding), Robotics, and CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software. Classroom instruction will introduce students to principles of design, electrical fundamentals, automation, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's), industrial maintenance and troubleshooting systems. Students will be able to perform basic welding fabrication, interpret drawing dimensions and symbols, use CAD to create working drawings, setup and operate machinery, understand Computer Integrated Manufacturing Technology (CIMT), program PLC's and Robotics. Students will also be able to supplement their learning experience with modern edge technology using equipment like: 3D printers, 3D scanners, Laser Engravers, 3D CAD and CNC Programming.
