The GROB apprenticeship program is an opportunity to learn an in-demand trade, earn a debt-free college degree, and start your career at a world-class machine tool manufacturer - all while being paid! No experience in manufacturing? None needed! The combination of GROB's in-house training program and your college classes will prepare you to become a highly-skilled mechanical or electrical technician at GROB in just two years.
The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology Program offers students the opportunity to build a career maintaining integrated manufacturing systems found in advanced manufacturing. The program leads students through a mechatronics approach to maintaining and troubleshooting highly-automated, complex manufacturing systems that include programmable logic controllers, robots, various types of drives, sensors, photoeyes, and electrohydraulics and electropnuematics.VIEW THE CURRICULUM
The apprenticeship is a 4 year committment, which includes 2 years of technical training and 2 years of workforce placement.
GROB offers two different apprenticeship pathways - mechanical and electrical. All apprentices earn an Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree from Rhodes, but their in-house training at GROB is what sets the two pathways apart.
