++ Transfer students should consult transfer institutions for course recommendations.

The objective of the certificate program is to provide a second level of essential skills and knowledge to individuals seeking a background in the machine technology profession. This certificate is targeted to students who have completed the 34 semester hour Advanced Manufacturing Machine Technology Program.

Technological changes in production have required a much higher skilled employee that possesses computer skills (including software & hardware skills, such as, CNC, CAD & CAM and other computer applications); higher levels of math; abstract reasoning skill; and measurement skills. This program provides the advanced technical skills in machining, design, measurement, and production techniques.


This certificate enables the candidate to enter the private sector with the skills and abilities to secure employment in many different areas of manufacturing including machine operator, set up and operation of CNC, and Layout and Inspection. The certificate also provides the candidate with the basis to move into higher levels of manufacturing processes.

The career ladder in Advanced Manufacturing is vast, beginning with machining jobs, leading to departmental supervision, and then to management opportunities. Career opportunities into management are a natural segway due to the advanced machining and programming skills provided by this program.
