Robotics Education and
Workforce Development


Educators – Learn how to empower your local workforce and enable your students to become proficient in robotics. Prepare your students to be job-ready on day one by providing them with the skills required for a career in advanced manufacturing.

STEM Robotics Solutions

Teach robotics programming using the same equipment deployed in factories around the world. Complete, modular STEM Platforms, available in material handling and welding models, are designed for education and training programs. Featuring standard industrial-grade components and comprehensive academic tools, STEM Robotics 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 STEM 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.
