The student who completes the 34 semester hour Advanced Manufacturing Machine Technology program has a choice to pursue employment; to matriculate in an associate degree program; or to develop higher level skills sets in machine technology by transitioning into a third semester program in Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing Machine Technology II, CAD/CAM, or Quality Inspection.
There is a trend toward greater sophistication of skill sets required for entry-level positions. It is our commitment to ensure that graduates obtain all of the requisite skill sets for successful employment. Within a few months of on-the-job experience, it is our expectation the recent graduate should be fully engaged and capable of achieving the stated objectives of the employment position.
The objective of the certificate program is to provide our students higher level technical skills including computer skills (software & hardware skills, such as, CNC, CAD & CAM, CMM and other manufacturing applications skills); machining skills; higher levels of manufacturing math skills; abstract reasoning skill; measurement skills; and quality control skills.
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 Quality Control. The certificate also provides the candidate with the basis to move into higher levels of manufacturing processes and management opportunities.
