Company Helping Students Gain Highly Sought-After Certification
The Greenville Campus has recently extended its partnership with Process Automation Solutions, a market-leading provider of manufacturer-independent automation solutions for the Pharmaceutical industry. In years past, Campus Director of Academic Affairs Drew McCabe, Department Head Phil Barone, and PA Automation Engineer Sean Schooley have worked together to provide KUKA Robot Certification opportunities for ECPI students.
In addition to the KUKA robot it had already donated, PA Solutions has just donated a FANUC robot as well and is helping students prepare to earn certifications to program what has become an increasingly popular piece of technology among manufacturers. They are learning to program it for small part sorting and assembly, inspection, machine tending, and parts delivery. This gives them real-world operating experience that is sought after by companies such as Hubbell Incorporated, Apex Tool Group, Fehrer Automotive, and others.
Students will still have the opportunity to earn the KUKA KORE Certification as well which prepares them to program tasks such as painting, packaging, and assembly. This skill allows them to compete for highly-desirable jobs with local manufacturing facilities such as BMW, Siemens, and ZF Transmissions.
“This partnership has worked out exceptionally well for our students, as well as PA Solutions, as it provides the company with a great opportunity to hire recent graduates,” says Mr. McCabe. “It also builds each students’ resume to make them highly marketable for multiple manufacturing opportunities in the region.”
