(Automated) Manufacturing Engineering Technology Option

Program Description

The ultimate goal of the Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program is to develop a highly skilled, hands-on, manufacturing technologist for the 21st century. Students are engaged in learning a full range of practical industrial skills that occur throughout a products assembly or production process. Students are exposed to specific subject areas such as Lean Manufacturing, CNC programming, CAD/CAM operations, Additive Manufacturing, Plastics Molding and Materials Production. In addition, traditional first year and second year engineering courses such as (Statics & Strength of Materials) are incorporated to provide a foundation for continuing on to four year Bachelor of Science programs in Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Technology Management.
