Manufacturing (Automated) Engineering Technology

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 product’s assembly or production process. Students are exposed to specific subject areas such as Lean Manufacturing, CNC programming, CAD/CAM operations, Additive Manufacturing, 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.

General Education Core course listings and definitions appear on pages 54-57. Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required. Note: To complete the degree in two years, students are advised to complete the courses in the sequence listed beginning in the fall semester.
