Associate of Applied Science Program of Studyadvanced manufacturing

Technical Studies
Major: Advanced Manufacturing

Program Code: 718-03

Length: Two-year Program – Four-semesters 

Purpose:   The Technical Studies, Associate of Applied Science degree program in Advanced Manufacturing is designed to provide training in three aspects of manufacturing. These include: precision machining (manual machines and CNC), welding, and mechatronics (electrical, mechanical, and industrial maintenance). This focus will provide introductory skills for advanced manufacturing technology, industrial maintenance, and other high-demand jobs in industrial and manufacturing occupational fields.

This program will prepare students for both entry-level technical positions and career growth. In addition to the credit students will have the opportunity to earn nationally recognized certifications related to advance manufacturing.

Occupational Objectives:  Machinist, Machine Operator, Industrial Maintenance Technician, CNC Machinist, CNC Operator, Mechatronics Technician

Admission Requirements:  In addition to the admission requirements established for the college, entry into the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology program requires proficiency in high school English, Mathematics, and Science. Students will be required to take English and Math placement test and complete pre-requisite developmental courses before being allowed to enter the program.

Program Requirements:  The students will receive training in engineering technology courses encompassing precision machining, welding, and mechatronics.  The courses to be offered as part of the program will include advance technology, manual machining concepts, CNC operations, CNC programming, welding, electrical, electronics, mechanical, robotics, blue print reading, hydraulics and pneumatics, and other mechatronic, CNC, and robotic concepts. The courses in the program will prepare students for nationally recognized certifications related to advance manufacturing.  These include:  National Institute for Metal Working Skills (NIMS), Manufacturing Technician level 1 (MT1), American Welding Society (AWS) and SIEMENS Mechatronics Level I certification.  Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the graduate will be awarded the Technical Studies Associate of Applied Science Degree in Advanced Manufacturing.
