About the Program
The Robotics Engineering Technology major is part of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program. The Manufacuring Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
This is one of three majors offered in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute for students who seek to contribute at the intersection between manufacturing, electrical, mechanical, and computing areas in primarily industrial environments. When you major in robotics engineering technology, you will develop and apply robotic solutions to a broad range of industrial and consumer problems. Robots help people and companies be more productive and safer, and they help explore more frontiers.

The ♦ course is considered critical.
In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major. Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful. These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
