Miami Valley Career Tech Center“The MVCTC RAMTEC facility will be a game-changer. STEM is the future of workforce development in advanced manufacturing, and having an effective program will allow the city, region, state and nation to compete on a global stage. We are proud to partner with Yaskawa Motoman as we work to close the skills gap for high school and adult students and raise the potential for economic advancement in the entire Miami Valley Region.”

Florida Institute of Technology “Yaskawa Motoman was very supportive in helping me design the best system for my needs and goals. We use the equipment at the undergraduate and graduate levels for research and projects. It’s a great learning platform for students–they love working with the robot and its software, and some have gone on to jobs with robots and automation thanks to the experience they gained with Yaskawa Motoman products.”

Vantage“Students use the Yaskawa Motoman products virtually every day in our electricity and industrial mechanics programs, and we are looking to add a welding simulator as well. Our objective is to prepare students for college, or to gain positions in their desired careers, and Yaskawa Motoman has made them more marketable.”

STEM Robotics Solutions

Teach robotics programming using the same equipment deployed in factories around the world. Complete, modular STEM Platforms are designed for education and training programs. Featuring standard industrial-grade components and comprehensive academic tools, STEM Platforms can be customized to fit curriculum and room layout. We also offer a compact industrial welding solution for hands-on education.

Simulate a fully functional production environment with MotoSim, a comprehensive software package that provides accurate 3D simulation of robot cells. With MotoSim Touch, students can toggle between a virtual programming pendant or a hardware pendant.

Online Learning Management System

Web-based LMS provides best-in-class robotics education. This comprehensive STEM-aligned curriculum will provide your students with the academic core standards and 21st century skills required for careers in advanced manufacturing.

Certification

Yaskawa Academy offers three certification programs:

  • The Train-the-Trainer Program is designed for instructors of K-12 students, career tech and college undergraduates. It provides the ability for schools to develop a student-based robotics certification course with focus on core robotics skills, or to expand an existing mechatronics robotics program.
  • The MERIT program is designed for instructors of educational institutions and to support workforce development certification with industry. It enables instructors to deliver the same curriculum and instructional model as Yaskawa Academy to local manufacturers.
  • The Modified MERIT Program is designed for instructors of K-12 students, career tech and college undergraduates. It provides the ability for schools to develop a student-based robotics certification course with focus on core robotics skills, or to expand an existing mechatronics robotics program. It also offers the ability to upgrade to the MERIT program.
