NHTI Concord's Community College Major Field Project (RB 250)

The Major Field Project is a semester long project in the student’s major field of Robotics and Automation Engineering Technology. Each student will have the chance to experience real-world problem solving that will soon characterize their professional career. With this project on their resume, students will gain an advantage on the competition when it comes to launching their careers or gaining admission to bachelor level programs at other colleges. The Major Field Project involves problems typical of those found in the student’s professional discipline and addresses challenging research issues. Each student project will culminate in a written and oral report and a poster on Project Presentation Day. (Pre-requisites: ENGL101C, ENGL120C or ENGL 125C, and RAET 220C each with a grade of “C” or higher.)
