The mission of the Automation Academy is to develop our know-how, train new colleagues, cooperate with schools and popularize technical fields.
WE ESTABLISHED THE AUTOMATION ACADEMY IN 2018, ITS ROOTS DATE BACK TO 2014. TODAY, THE ACADEMY COVERS INTERNAL EDUCATION AND COOPERATION WITH SCHOOLS AND POPULARIZATION OF TECHNICAL DISCIPLINES.
We live for automationa and we are proud of our success and colleagues. However, we know that our responsibility does not end there. WE STRIVE TO BE A GOOD PARTNER FOR OUR CUSTOMERS, COLLEAGUES AND OTHERS IN THE REGION which is very closely linked with the industry and technical professions. Therefore, we actively promote technical disciplines and technical education and we cooperate with schools. The Automation Academy and associated training of other entities, may it be our internal staff, our customers or students, constitute a part of our social responsibility policy.
DEVELOPMENT AND TRANSFER OF PROFESSIONAL KNOW-HOW
The main activities of the Automation Academy are TECHNICAL TRAINING FOR OUR SPECIALISTS, NEW EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS who need to train their maintenance staff. We focus on training in PLC and HMI programming (Siemens, Mitsubishi, GE), industrial robotics, machinery safety as well as fundamentals of industrial informatics (communication and networking in the industrial practice, SQL databases). We can customize the training programs to suit customer needs and provide them directly at the operation site. Information on Mitsubishi Electric product training dates.
We are an expert guarantor of the field of study “Industrial Automation” in the Tertiary Technical School, Business Academy and Secondary Technical Vocational School Chotěboř.
SUPPORT OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION
ZIn particular, we focus on cooperation with students of secondary schools and universities in the form of practical internships. In cooperation with the Tertiary Technical School, Business Academy and Secondary Technical Vocational School Chotěboř , in the school year 2020/2021 we opened THE FIELD OF STUDY COMPLETED WITH THE SECONDARY SCHOOL FINAL EXAMINATION “INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION” which focuses on mechanical and electrical engineering and IT. The field of study has been accredited as the education in electrical engineering. We are an expert guarantor and in addition to the continuous teaching of practical learning teachers we also provide time of our leading experts and engage them in the lectures.
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS COOPERATION IS THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION FOCUSED ON CURRENT TRENDS IN THE INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION, STRENGTHENING OF LOYALTY OF STUDENTS TO THE FIELD SELECTED AND THEIR PREPARATION FOR PRACTICAL LIFE IN THE AREA OF SYSTEM INTEGRATION OR MAINTENANCE OF MODERN INDUSTRIAL OPERATIONS.
POPULARIZATION OF TECHNICAL DISCIPLINES
Automation is in our blood and we just love our work. We regularly share our experience about what our work entails and how to become an expert on industrial automation with pupils and students who will make their career decision in the future. We regularly meet with students of the 8th and 9th grades of primary schools who can obtain their firsthand experience in our electrical engineering program.
Since 2014, we have been organizing interactive workshops for primary and secondary school pupils 6 - 8 times a year in cooperation with VOŠ, OA and SOUT Chotěboř and the Havlíčkův Brod District Chamber of Commerce. The events are focused on the future of technical professions and the presentation of study and job opportunities in the field of ELECTRICAL and AUTOMATION. We talk about what the fourth industrial revolution is, how it will affect the future of the technical professions and how to prepare for these changes. Study opportunities in our region are made up of school representatives, and its students then lead practical tasks that students can try out during the morning.
ELECTRICAL HOBBY GROUP FOR CHILDREN AND STUDENTS
Since 2016, we have been organizing an interest group focused on electrical engineering, automation and robotics. The aim is to strengthen the relationship with automation and prepare young people to study technical fields. In 2020, we work in 5 groups in Havlíčkův Brod and Karlovy Vary, in which a total of 46 pupils and students are involved.
We organize the rings under the auspices of local leisure organizations AZ Centrum Havlíčkův Brod and the House of Children and Youth Karlovy Vary.
