Hands-On Robotic Experience for Engineering Students at Wilkes University – Wilkes-Barre, PA

Aug 24, 2015

Robotics will continue to pop up in industries across the globe, and so the need for people to truly learn and understand them will keep growing. This is why it is important to have hands-on robotic experience as seen at Wilkes University. A robotics lab will help students better understand robots and be able to work with them in the future.


When a stu­dent enters col­lege and decides to take on the com­plex major of engi­neer­ing, it can them in many dif­fer­ent direc­tions. One of those direc­tions is the field of robot­ics. While stu­dents can learn a lot from their stud­ies, it is the hands-on knowl­edge they gain from using robot­ics that real­ly trains them for their future in the job market.

Wilkes Uni­ver­si­ty in Wilkes-Barre, Penn­syl­va­nia rec­og­nizes this and has automa­tion robot­ics labs to help their stu­dents link togeth­er mechan­i­cal, elec­tri­cal, micro­proces­sor, and com­put­er engi­neer­ing sci­ences, accord­ing to their web­site. Of course, if you have a robot­ics lab and engi­neer­ing stu­dents who need hands-on expe­ri­ence, then you need robots to fill those labs. Wilkes Uni­ver­si­ty decid­ed to come to Robots​.com to pur­chase an ABB Edu­ca­tion­al Pack­age for their engi­neer­ing stu­dents to use. 

Accord­ing to Aman­da Mod­rovsky of Wilkes Uni­ver­si­ty, this was their first time pur­chas­ing an indus­tri­al robot for aca­d­e­m­ic use. Mod­rovsky stat­ed that the ABB IRB 120 IRC5 Edu­ca­tion­al Pack­age was an excel­lent pur­chase and has ben­e­fit­ed the uni­ver­si­ty by increas­ing the poten­tial of their engi­neer­ing stu­dents through aca­d­e­m­ic uti­liza­tion of the sys­tem. She also stat­ed that the uni­ver­si­ty were pleased with the com­pet­i­tive price and ease of pur­chase of their sys­tem through Robots​.com, adding that she would rec­om­mend Robots​.com to others. 

Are you a uni­ver­si­ty, tech­ni­cal school, or voca­tion­al school that teach­es engi­neer­ing and robot­ics?
