BRMi will continue its partnership with James Madison University at the Harrisonburg, Virginia campus with another offering of Robotic Process Automation for the fall 2019 semester. BRMi Senior Director Trevor Brown, the course’s designer and instructor, explained: “We’re very excited as we have seen this pilot class move from 8 students in the spring of 2019 to over 20 students this fall. We will focus mainly on RPA but also include synergistic topics such as machine learning and chat bot interfaces. Culminating with the end-of-the-year X-Labs summit where we display some of these disruptive technologies.”
Robotic Process Automation is being taught through the university’s unique collaborative learning program, JMU X-Labs. The course covers a variety of business and education applications for RPA as well as the means and methods to intelligently optimize work performance by having humans work with robots across an enterprise from a central, end-to-end platform. Students will gain hands on experience using industry leading tools from UiPath to enhance the learning process.
Robotic Process Automation is part of BRMi’s corporate commitment to its community and fulfilling the need for advanced education for its future technology workforce. BRMi is helping JMU students solve real problems in the marketplace, learn real skills, and prepare to make an impact in the professional workforce as automation experts.
BRMi is an official industry partner of the awarding-winning JMU X-Labs. JMU X-Labs collaborates with distinguished government and industry organizations that give transdisciplinary student teams real-world experience.
