About the Program

Bowling Green State University is developing advanced manufacturing continuing education modules in the areas of ‘automation and robotics’ and ‘smart manufacturing’. As emerging technologies continue to drive manufacturers to identify opportunities to automate processes, the industry needs employees that can safely, efficiently, and effectively, work alongside robots and other automated processes. To meet this need, BGSU will develop 16 modules in 2024-2025 targeted toward non-degreed and degreed manufacturing workers currently in the workforce or entering the workforce.
