Industrial and Commercial Trades

What is Industrial & Commercial Trades (INCT)?

FANUC Robot LR Mate 200iD4S

The Industrial and Commercial Trades program serves students by providing a diverse education in the trades, maintenance and distribution fields. All students will learn the basics of workplace safety and health as well as effective problem-solving and troubleshooting skills. Depending on the chosen degree option, students will be prepared to work in building maintenance, industrial maintenance and product distribution fields. Faculty with direct experience in the industry teach the courses. A major strength of the program is the strong hands-on approach to learning.

Center for Advanced Manufacturing

The renovation process at MCC’s South Omaha Campus is going well. Phase I of MCC’s Center for Advanced Manufacturing is all but complete. Contractors are focused on Phase II of the renovation project which includes a massive upgrade of MCC’s Welding classroom and lab space. Anticipated completion of MCC’s Center for Advanced Manufacturing Renovation is the Fall 2020 quarter. Beginning in the Spring of 2019 we will be offering the first of two new robotics courses, Introduction to Robotics.

  • INCT 2100 Introduction to Industrial Robotics

    • Students learn basic concepts and skills in industrial robotic operations with emphasis on the Fanuc R-30iB series robot controller. Students program, test, run and trouble-shoot FANUC material handling application programs. Students successfully completing the course will be able to: Safely demonstrate power up and jog the robot, execute production operations and recover from common faults, create and modify material handling programs and macros and utilize robot and controller input and output signals. The course consists of online curriculum, demonstrations and a series of laboratory exercises using the Fanuc CERT training modules. Obtaining a FANUC CERT certificate is possible.
  • INCT 2110 Vision for Industrial Robotics

    • Students learn to program a vision system as a stand-alone solution and integrate it into robotic systems. The student will receive instruction on general vision concepts, including camera setup, lighting, lensing, 2D Single & 2D Multiple View Process and perform hands-on programming with industrial vision systems. Obtaining a FANUC CERT certificate is possible.
