Purpose: The Technical Studies, Associate of Applied Science degree program in Advanced Manufacturing is designed to provide training in three aspects of manufacturing: precision machining (manual machines and CNC), welding, and mechatronics (electrical, mechanical, and industrial maintenance).

This focus provides introductory skills for advanced manufacturing technology, industrial maintenance, and other high-demand jobs in industrial and manufacturing occupational fields.

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

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: Students receive training in engineering technology courses encompassing precision machining, welding, and mechatronics. The courses offered as part of the program 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.
