Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Associates of Science

Become 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 product’s assembly or production process.

What is Automated Manufacturing?

In the Manufacturing Engineering Program, you will learn to develop the most competitive manufacturing processes to produce new and future products. You will learn the basic engineering fundamentals and how to apply the scientific principles you have already learned to solve the most complicated of technical problems.

The program includes working with:

  • Computer Numerical Controlled Machines (CNC)
  • Computer-Aided Manufacturing Software (CAM)

What happens after?

Upon completion of this program, graduates will be eligible to go into various fields of manufacturing engineering, product development, CNC/CAM programming, and project or production supervision.
