Create your career in Manufacturing Engineering Technology
Manufacturing engineering technicians operate metal-removing equipment such as lathes, drill presses, milling machines and grinders, many of which are computer numerically controlled (CNC). Manufacturing technicians may specialize in operating one type of machine or they may be required to work equally well on several. They may work in small machining shops or in manufacturing industries, such as machinery or transportation equipment manufacturing.
To accommodate working students, some courses are
available during the evening and students may enroll full or part-time.
Students who complete the program requirements are awarded the
Associate of Applied Science in Manufacturing Engineering
Curriculum include courses designed to help graduates:
Develop skills in shop mathematics, blueprint reading, machining processes, precision layout and measurement, organization, communication, teamwork, and programming and operating CNC machines
Operate engine lathes, drill presses, grinders, horizontal and vertical mills, and computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining and turning centers
Use precision layout, measuring/gauging tools
Have career opportunities as either manufacturing technicians or computer control programmers and operators
