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


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 RobotWorx 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 RobotWorx, adding that she would recommend RobotWorx to others.

Are you a university, technical school, or vocational school that teaches engineering and robotics? Are you interested in learning more about the educational packages available through ABB and other robotics manufacturers? Then you should give RobotWorx a call to get more information about these and other industrial robots available for purchase.
