Get the tools you need for the future you want
Manufacturing Technology is a cross-disciplinary program which allows the students to chart a personalized path to a degree and certificates by taking several required courses along with courses chosen from any of our manufacturing-related degree programs. Classes from Industrial Systems Technology (IST), Drafting and Design Technology (DDT), Precision Machining Technology (PMT), Welding (WLD), and other related electives can be combined to lead to the MFG degree. Upon completion, students receive an Associate of Applied Science in Manufacturing Technology. For an expedited path to employment, students may obtain a short-term Manufacturing Technology Certificate.
This program is intended to help employers create a professional training plan for their employees that lead to a degree and/or certificates, and exactly fits the needs of the employee for the particular position they are in. Further post-degree training can lead to the top level certificate and prepare employees for management and supervisory roles. Student enrollment must be preceded by an advising consultation with one or more of the department chairs of the above programs to create a degree/certification plan for individuals or groups of employees. Contact the department chair form more information.
