Welcome to Computer Engineering Technology: Robotics and Control System.
This course examines robotics systems and control of external devices. Students will assemble robots and small networks by installing and configuring appropriate
hardware and software. Students will develop knowledge and skills in electronics,
robotics, programming, and networks, and will build systems that use computer programs and interfaces to control and/or respond to robotic devices. Students will develop an awareness of related environmental and societal issues, and will learn about college and university programs leading to careers in robotics and mechatronics.

In a workshop for FRC the presenter said the best teams fail often and fail faster than other teams. Working with electronics there are many things that can go wrong. How you problem solve and learn from problems is very important.
Assessment of Learning
Each unit your assessment of learning will be based on your quizzes (listed in schedule) and your portfolio which is due the last day of the unit. If you require support (i.e. extra time, accommodations) you are asked to email Mr. McTavish is advance to coordinate.
