Fall 2015 Program Requirements Comparison
 

     The Manufacturing Technology associate degree program provides a high-quality education that affords graduates opportunities for immediate employment in various manufacturing industries. These businesses include sectors that produce tools and components used in the manufacturing of everything from electronics and biomedical supplies, to consumer products and sheet metals, to parts for the aerospace industry. The program covers an array of areas relating to the fields of precision metalwork, Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machining, sheet-metal fabrication, and operation of milling machines, lathes, grinders, band saws, drill presses, and computerized machinery. The program also prepares students in the use of various design software products, such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Students will also be well versed in state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and methods, such as Lean Manufacturing implementation. Graduates can be employed as machinists and machine-control operators, forepersons, engineering-design-team members, and manufacturing supervisors.
