Automation Tech Practicum
During this exclusive 10-month practicum program students are given the opportunity to work at our state-of-the-art Carnival Studios and onboard one of Carnival Cruise Line’s 25 ships. For the first 12 weeks, students will gain experience on both the TAIT Navigator and Mechatronics platforms used onboard as well as exposure to basic entertainment rigging and safety protocols in order to be fully prepared for a 6-month contract. The primary role of the Automation Technician Practicum student is to act as the operator of the automated stage rigging system in the main theater (up to 32 axes of automation) for all shows and activities. This includes full‐cast production shows, magic shows, variety shows, Welcome Aboard Show, Game Shows, lounge talks & presentations, and more. They are also responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of the drops as well as assisting the Backstage Technician with the maintenance and repair of the scenery and props.
